Sweet on Sunday - Game Day Football Cookies

Okay, I'm starting this post with full disclosure . . . I couldn't care less about the Superbowl, football or for that matter, sports in general. I know this is a pretty unpopular viewpoint, but I just had to get it out there. For me, there is way too little time in life to pursue my own interests that I just can't bring myself to spend any amount of time watching others pursue theirs. Except when they're related to me, of course.

That said, Jim woke up this morning and said "Let's go watch the Superbowl tonight!", which came as a complete surprise to someone who didn't even know that the Superbowl was today. So we're going to my mom's, and I'm considering it a nice visit with my mom during which the TV just happens to be on. Oh, and I'm taking three loads of laundry to fold in the process.

My lack of enthusiasm, however, didn't stop me from using it as an excuse to bake . . . after all, we can't show up empty-handed (yes, I know that technically we could, but work with me here!) Actually, the thought hadn't even entered my mind until I stumbled across this adorable recipe for Game Day Football Cookies.

Although I'm usually pretty good at making food taste good, making it look good is another story. I'm not crafty and artistic in any way, but these were simple enough that I couldn't screw them up. Oh, and you can't see it in the picture, but they're actually dipped in chocolate on the bottom as well. They look adorable, taste delicious and certainly won't last through the night.

To all you sports fans out there, enjoy the game!


  1. They're adorable. I don't care about the game either, except that I have a chance to win some $$. So...I asked on another post..who won last month? Please do tell!

  2. Tara, I love them too but most are beyond my skill level. LOL! She had some really cool "food art" on her blog.

    Carol, I hope the game pays off for you! Are you asking about last month's giveaway? Cristi was our winner, and she chose Skinny Bitch in the Kitch. :)

  3. These are "Super" cute!
