Super Bowl Cookies

Another thing I made for the Super Bowl, were sugar cookies.  Since I like to do themes, I made half of them with the Bronco’s colors and half with the Seahawks.  Ever since the “Fail Mary” in 2012 I can’t root for the Seahawks. Even though I still hope Russell Wilson does well–I do so purely because he was a Wisconsin Badger and I have to root for those with Wisconsin connections (except when it comes to Badger Basketball.  There’s an intrastate rivalry between Marquette and UW-Madison).


The Friday night before the Super Bowl, I baked cookies.

My cookie recipe is pretty simple. It was the recipe that my mom used that I found in her recipe box.

Ingredients

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used half almond extract and have vanilla extract)
Directions
I preheated my oven to 375 degrees. Using my stand mixture, I creamed the butter and sugar, until smooth.
When smooth, I added the egg and 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract and 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract instead of 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.  Next I added the dry ingredients and mixed all together in my stand mixer.
Once mixed, I took out the dough and rolled it out.  Then I grabbed my jersey/shirt shaped cookie cutter and started cutting out cookies.
Into the oven they went for about 11 to 12 minutes.  The directions call for a bake time of about 8 to 10 minutes.  But my oven is a little off so I have to compensate for that.  When done, I took them out on the oven and put on a cooling rack.  Once cooled I packed them away until Saturday.

Saturday, between making bread dough and letting it rise, I frosted the cookies. I made the frosting my mixing milk and confectioners sugar until it was the consistency I liked.  I wanted it a little thicker so it wouldn’t run all over the place.  Once the shirts dried.  I piped numbers and a few details

And we have Russell Wilson, Payton Manning and Monte Ball’s jerseys in cookies.  I can’t wait until St. Patrick’s day I’m going to bring in shamrock cookies into work.
