Happy Opening Night of the NFL season cookies! Go Bills!

Go Bills!

Tonight is a very big night – the Bills season opener, which is also the NFL season opener. 😊 To celebrate such a monumentous occasionally, I made chocolate cutouts sandwich cookies, with footballs and football helmets. I put a simple buttercream filling between 2 cookies.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup crisco
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking, so your oven cycles to the correct temperature. Line cookie sheets with nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, cream butter, crisco and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Roll to desired thickness and cut. (I like mine to be on the thicker side)

On lined cookie sheets, place cookies

Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes. Cool completley.

  • Filling ingredients
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tbs heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions – blend butter and powdered sugar. Add cream and vanilla. Spread between 2 cookies. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you make these, let me know how they turn out.

Go Bills!

Ahead of the Bills first home playoff game in 25 years, I have made 2 treats. This one is a chocolate chip cutout, in football form, made into cookie sandwiches. I used mini chips because cookie cutters won’t go through regular size chocolate chips. Use whatever flavor filling you wish. Go Bills! Also, I love Josh Allen. I am excitedly nervous about the game on Saturday. I know this week has been awful and I take refuge in my love of sports and baking.
