Speaking of this weekend. . . Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday and my Pittsburgh Steelers are playing for our 7th Lombardi trophy! Go Steelers!!! I'll be all decked out in my black and gold jersey and waving my terrible towel like a crazy woman.
Unfortunately, no Super Bowl snacks this time around. I have started a healthy eating regimen and can't have anything other than what is on my "good food" list. If I had thought about it a little better I could have waited to start until next week. Oh well. No dips, wings, beer, or sweets for me. My sweets will be when the Steelers beat the Green Bay Packers. :)
Anyway, just because I can't eat yummy football food doesn't mean you can't. Here is re-post of a really fun and simple recipe for this weekend's game. I hope you enjoy it. And please, eat some goodies for me. I'll be snacking on carrot sticks. :(
Football Shaped Cookies
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1 container (1 lb) chocolate creamy ready-to-spread frosting
White decorating gel
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Freeze dough 30 minutes.
2. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices. With floured fingers, shape each dough slice to form football. On ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 2 inches apart.
3. Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until set and golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
4. Spread frosting over cookies. With white decorating gel, draw laces on each football.
Go Steelers! Bring home #7!!!
