Kickoff {mini football} Cookie Bites

So, I made some mini football cookies the other day...I thought they were pretty cute:)  Then again, I am pretty much a sucker for all things mini:) As cute as the tiny pigskins turned out, I thought they needed something more, just a little bit of something to kick them up a notch:)
I think these kickoff cookies fit the bill! I love that they were so easy to put together.  I simply mixed  up the sugar cookie dough, along with some royal icing. The footballs were made using a petit four cutter from this set.  I also used a small round cutter for the patch of grass cookie.
 The grass was made with  some thickened royal icing, tinted green (Wilton leaf green), and applied with a #233 Wilton grass tip. After the grass was applied,  I immediately pushed a football (royal icing tinted with AmeriColor Chocolate brown) vertically into the middle, held it for a couple of seconds, and then it stayed put on its own.  I made three dozen in no time at all!

After all the chips, dips and chicken wings, these little cookie bites are just the right amount of sweet!

I hope you got a kick out of these:)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  25. These are the cutest cookies I've seen in a long time! How creative! I never can get inspired when it comes to football cookies. Although, my team is in it this year, so I might just have to make some 49er cookies for the guys! You are the best Sue!
