Oreo football cookies.
the mr did not want a birthday cake this year, remember? [i had planned on making him a football cake]
I was trying to decide what to do when I remembered he'd been craving homemade Oreo's.
So I figured I'd make the oreos into footballs!
Instead of rolling the dough into balls, I tried shaping them into footballs, but when they cooked, they flattened, and just looked like round cookies.
Then I used the palms of my hands, rolled them, like making a worm, and pinched the edges.
Grab your cream cheese frosting, now it's time for the laces.
I put the frosting in a ziploc bag, pushed it all to one corner and cut the very tip of the bag off.
look how cute they are!!
[okay some are messy but i was in big hurry]
that's better :)
Since the first batch turned out pretty round, I used all of them for the bottoms, then put the good looking ones on top
i could really go for one right now, you?
turns out it was a perfect alternative to a birthday cake! [which he wouldn't have eaten the cake anyway, so then I feel like i have to eat it so it doesn't go to waste, which I shouldn't be eating...anyway, it was a win-win]
Wouldn't these be fun for a football party?!
Superbowl in feb?!
Yeah, they'd be a hit!
Here's the oreo recipe:
1 box of Devil's Food Cake Mix
2/3 cup of butter flavored crisco
Cream Cheese frosting
Mix it all together. Roll into balls [or footballs]!
Bake at 350 for 10-12 Mins.
