Making Football Cookies (with a video tutorial!)

This weekend I will be going to a friend’s house to watch the Jets game. Since I was already preparing our annual Halloween cookies, I figured I could squeeze out a bunch of football shaped confections for the big game. Below is a guide to how I cut out the cookies, along with a video tutorial on icing them!

To make the cookies, I used a “candy corn” shaped cookie cutter. I cut one side…

…and then flipped the cutter in the opposite direction and cut it the other way.

Next, I pressed together the middle section to hold the cookie together…

…and voila! A football cookie was born!

Here my mom gives really easy instructions on outlining and filling (or ‘flooding’) the cookies with royal icing. (And now you can view them on my blog’s YouTube page!)

What kinds of cut-out cookies do YOU like to make?
