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)
2 boxes devil foods cake mix
1 c oil
mix together, shape, and cook at 350 for 8-10 mins.
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 :)
