Football Game Day Sugar Cookies – bite-sized, totes adorbs, cutout sugar cookies decorated with football game day awesomeness; nothing says Super Bowl like these tasty decorated sugar cookies!
Are you ready for the Super Bowl? If you don’t have awesome game day treats like these Football Game Day Sugar Cookies, then I think not.
I am not big into the Super Bowl when the Green Bay Packers aren’t in it, and this year sadly they are not. Instead, I’ll be enjoying football food and watching the Super Bowl commercials. How about you?
If you’re enjoying the Super Bowl I highly recommend Football Game Day Sugar Cookies! I also recommend them if you aren’t watching; they are just too cute, fun, and delicious to pass up!
Football Game Day Sugar Cookies
Using your fav sugar cookie recipe or sugar cookie mix, make your cutout sugar cookie dough. If you’re looking for decorated cookie tips, I am a HUGE fan of How to Roll Out Sugar Cookie Dough, How to Cut Out Perfect Sugar Cookies Every Time and Flatten Cookies for a Smooth Decorating Surface.
Using a square cookie cutter (I used the 3rd smallest one in this set.) cut out your square cookies. Bake and allow cookies to cool completely before frosting.
Make your royal icing. You’ll need Leaf Green (10 drops) and Chocolate Brown (10 drops), which should be 8-second icing to both outline and flood. You’ll also need white, which should be thicker; you want to pipe with it. For outlining and flooding I use disposable pastry bags fitted with PME #2 Round Tip.
For the goal post cookies, outline and flood half the cookie with brown. Immediately shake rainbow nonpareils onto cookie; these are your football fans. Outline and flood the other half of the cookie with green. Allow sugar cookie to dry completely before piping a white goal post.
For the football cookies, outline and flood the entire cookie with brown royal icing. Allow to dry completely before piping white football laces.
For the field cookies, outline and flood the entire cookie with green royal icing. Allow to dry completely before piping white yard lines and numbers.
Football Game Day Sugar Cookies – eat one (or three) every time there is a touchdown and the Super Bowl will be AWESOME!
