football!

are you ready for some football???  i know we are!


and what makes watching football enjoyable?  for the hubs- the game.  and for me- it's friends and treats :)  so for today's big game, i decided to whip up football oreos.  thank you pinterest for the idea!  i thought these were so cute.  the only tip i have, is let the dough sit for a bit before attempting to shape/roll them.  my first batch were super sticky and hard to roll and shape and i was so frustrated!  but then unintentionally, i had to let the dough sit.  (all 3 kiddos needed mom at the same time for various reasons.  such is life these days!)  when i came back though, the dough was much easier to work with and far less wet and sticky.


my homemade oreo recipe:
(from my older sister sarah)

cookies:

2 boxes devil foods cake mix
4 eggs
1 c oil

mix together, shape, and cook at 350 for 8-10 mins.

frosting:

1 pkg cream cheese softened
1/4 c butter softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 c powdered sugar

mix together and frost cookies.

and for the laces decoration- put small amount of frosting in a ziploc bag, smoosh to one corner, barely snip the corner off, and squeeze out slowly decorating the cookies.


and now go enjoy!  grab a diet dr. pepper, a cookie, chat with friends and be prepared to clap and cheer whenever you hear others clap and cheer!!  at least thats how i plan on enjoying the game :)
