Sunday Family and Football

27 Sep

The family decided to drive up for the BIG Texans vs. Cowboys game this past weekend. The TEXANS lost. MAJOR. Like, I was seriously embarrassed for them. Oh well. It’s just the beginning.

I decided to make Texans and Cowboys themed cookies using Martha Stewart’s AMAZING perfect sugar cookie recipe + royal icing.

Check out the photos below.

Our masterpieces

I convinced my mom, aunt and cousin to help with the decorating. My aunt and cousin made all the Cowboys cookies and my mom and I made the Texans cookies. Cute. As you can see, we weren’t quite sure what to do for the Texans cookies besides make red and blue designs. I managed to create the Texans mascot on a few cookies, though. šŸ™‚

The recipe rocked. I love how the recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of Brandy! I only added 1 1/2 tbls, but WOW — it definitely made a difference. The small was strong as I was rolling the dough out. The taste was not overwhelming once baked, but I do agree that it adds an extra punch to sugar cookies. This is now my go-t0 sugar cookie recipe.

The Royal Icing was also a big hit. I added about 1 1/2 tbls of lemon juice. I have A LOT leftover though…I guess I can try mixing other colors in with the blue and red. šŸ™‚

Overall, the cookies were a big hit.

xoxo, Ari
