In honor of football season, as a Walmart mom I was challenge to create a favorite treat for game day - in the shape of a football! Honestly, my favorite meal that I can associate with football is buffalo shrimp - simply delicious but there was no way for me to arrange it in a football shape that made sense. So, I decided to make some football shaped cookies.
Since I love baking, these cookies were a natural and although I made them without the help of my four year old, this is certainly a recipe that he could have helped with. I simply made sugar cookies by whipping up the batter in about 5 minutes. I honestly think that making things from scratch doesn't take that much more effort than using pre-made dough.
After mixing the dough I took about a tablespoon and shaped them by hand into football shapes. As the first batch of cookies baked I prepared the chocolate frosting. This is REALLY simple and takes melted butter, cocoa and confectioners sugar. I don't think I'll ever use pre-made frosting again unless absolutely necessary!
