Chocolate Football Cookies/ #SundaySupper

It's football season! For me that means lots of fun foods, like cheesy appetizers, colorful drinks, spicy wings, and these chocolate football cookies! Today we are talking football, or at least football food, which is my favorite part of the game, and these football cookies are a fun treat for any fan! They take some prep and planning, and they are totally worth the time! You can even freeze the cookies once they are cooked. Then just let them thaw before you decorate!


Chocolate Football Cookies
(printable recipe)
Makes 5-6 dozen cookies, depending on size

Sugar Cookies
4 3/4 cups Flour
1/4 cup  Dutch Process Cocoa Powder
3 teaspoon Baking Powder
pinch of Salt 
2 cups Butter, softened
2 cups Sugar
2 Eggs
2 teaspoon Almond Extract 

 Royal Icing
 6 oz. Warm Water
5 tablespoons Meringue Powder
1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
2.25 pounds Confectioner's Sugar 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a separate bowl mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Mix in eggs and almond extract. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients, a little at a time, until it is all incorporated and the dough comes together.
The dough needs to be chilled. Roll a spatula full of dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper. The dough should be 1/4" thick.Cover the dough with parchment paper. Place on a cookie sheet, covered with plastic, into the refrigerator. Do this until all the dough is rolled between pieces of parchment. By the time you are done, the dough you put on the cookie sheet first will be done.
 Start cutting the dough with the cookie cutter. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes. Make the frosting recipe. When cookies are done, let them cool for 5 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely. 
Fill a decorating bag with frosting. Start decorating the football cookies as shown above. Use a #2 tip for everything. Let dry completely.

For more detailed directions on making the cookie dough and the frosting, read how I have made them in the past. 
Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Baking!
