Mini Chocolate Chip Football sandwich cookies

For the final football Friday of this NFL season, I made mini chocolate chip football sandwich cookies, with vanilla frosting as a filling. I thought of also using my football helmet cookie cutter too, but the last time I brought those in, my coworkers thought they were whales. So, just football this time. And some of the finished product don’t even look like footballs.

Remember to spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup. Use mini chips for these. It will be too hard to use cookie cutters with full size chips in the dough. I did chill the dough for a half hour. I also preheated the oven for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right temp.

Not sure these look like footballs!
