Game Day Treats

Unless you live under a rock, you know that the Super Bowl was last night.  And, if you've been reading my blog, you also know that we are huge Steelers fans in our house.  I've been a fan for as long as I can remember...from the days of the Dynasty back in the 70s, to the 'dark days' when they didn't do so well, up to today.  They didn't win last night, but I still love them.  I'd root for them even if they were ranked last in the NFL.

The last few times they were in the Super Bowl, I made special cookies for the big game.  Yesterday was no exception.  I started off with some sugar cookies made from the recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens (red and white checked) cookbook.  Great recipe!  Then, I rolled them out and used a large margarita glass to cut circles out of the dough and baked.

Then, I whipped up a batch of butter cream frosting...mmmm...look at that goodness....

Then, I gathered my decorating supplies and got to work.  (Warning...I am not an artist nor do I play one on tv.)

I spread plain white frosting over each cookie and then piped on 'Steelers'

Then I added the diamonds to complete the emblem. 

And now all of the cookies in their glory.  (and yes..they were delicious!)

Stay tuned for my mother-in-law's cheeseball recipe.  It's a favorite in our house!

YUM! They look fab!

And I LOVE my red-and-white-checked cook book! It's the one cook book that I take everywhere and is already on the packing list for my move to Scotland in August!
