We live in Lion’s country. No matter how badly we get beat up every season, we are always loyal to our Detroit Lions. This year has been no different…a small glimpse of hope started the season off…leading up to a losing record.
Gearing up for Thanksgiving, we’re still in the football spirit as the Lions play every Thanksgiving Day. Even though they’ve only won one game (barely) this season, I will be making these Lions Gameday Football Sugar Cookies to pass around during the game.
Not a Lions fan yourself? I don’t blame you…just swap with your team’s logo and you’ll have your own #1 fan cookies to pass around at the tailgate or your Super Bowl party!
- 1 roll of sugar cookie dough
- 1 pouch of Betty Crocker Blue Cookie Icing (or substitute with icing in your teams colors)
- Powdered sugar
- Piece of paper with your team’s logo cut out. If you’re a Lions fan, click here to download.
- Team colored sprinkles (optional)
Step 1 – Prepare cookies according to cookie dough package. Let cookies cool completely.
Step 2 – In a swirling motion, top with Betty Crocker Blue Cookie Icing. The icing should fill in and spread on it’s own. If there are any gaps, quickly spread in with small spatula or spoon (icing dries quickly). Let cookie icing dry for 15 – 20 minutes.
Step 3 – Print a cookie sized image of your favorite team logo or download this Lion’s stencil here. Take a plain piece of paper and set on top of printed logo. Trace the logo on to the plain paper, then cut out the shape to make your stencil.
Step 4 – Once the cookie icing is completely dried, lightly place the logo stencil on top of the cookie.
Step 5 – Sprinkle powdered sugar over the stencil and carefully lift upwards to reveal the decorated cookie. Optional: try covered the stencil with sprinkles that match your team’s colors – sugars work best.
I love using powdered sugar and stencils to decorate cookies and cakes. Be creative and try out some other designs.
We’re serious football fans, so if you have another football-themed recipe, please share it in the comments! We’d love to try it out!
