    Default Cinnamon Football Cookies

    Prep Time: 20 min
    Total Time: 35 min
    Makes: 2 dozen cookies

    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    24 whole blanched almonds
    Decorating Glaze
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1 1/2 to 3 teaspoons water

    1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix brown sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth. Stir in flour, cinnamon and salt until dough holds together.
    2. Shape dough by scant tablespoonfuls around almonds to form football shapes. On ungreased cookie sheet, place shapes about 1 inch apart.
    3. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.
    4. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and just enough water to make mixture that can be piped from decorating bag. Place glaze in decorating bag fitted with number 3 writing tip. With tip, make football laces on cookies.

    What better treat to have at a Super Bowl party? Serve these cookies in a football helmet lined with plastic wrap and cloth napkins.

    To make Cinnamon Basketball Cookies, use pitted dates for the almonds. Cut dates crosswise in half; mold dough around date half into basketball shape. Decorate with stripes
