Chocolate Football Cookies


Happy Super Bowl Sunday! If you're looking for an easy last minute treat to make, here ya go! These chocolate cookies are delicious and adorable.  The frosting is a cream cheese buttercream. You can use this to add to details to the footballs and for dipping the cookies into (there is no such thing as too much frosting on a cookie IMO).
Here is the recipe:


Chocolate Cookies:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1-2 tbsp. milk

Combine dry ingredients. Set aside. Mix butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg. Add dry ingredients slowly. Add milk. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate (at least an hour). Roll out dough and cut out football shapes with a cookie cutter. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
6 tbsp. butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add vanilla. Add powdered sugar slowly. Mix until light and fluffy. You can use a piping bag or a plastic baggie to pipe the details on the footballs. Put a small amount in the piping bag and leave the rest in a bowl for dipping.

Enjoy!

XO,
Sarah
