I love several things in life.
But I really have a love for cookies and football. And these Easy Football Stadium Cookies are a perfect mix of two of my favorite things!
The sugar cookies are actually my Grandma’s recipe. Ok, well, they are a friend of my Grandma’s (shout out to Kathy! Woop! Woop!) but my Grandma did write it on an index card and include in her cookbook of favorite recipes. So I feel like it kind of counts. She makes them every Christmas. They are perfect for busting out the cookie cutters with.
But today, Grandma’s cookies are getting brought out for fall. I may love cookies, but I’ll be honest. I am not talented in the cookie decorating department. So when I say that these are easy and that even I was able to make them look good, I mean that they are truly, 100% super simple.
I love the little ‘people’ in the stands behind the field goal. And sugar crystals? Those are my favorite! This is essentially the sugar cookie of my dreams. My favorite cookie recipe. My favorite sprinkles. And my favorite sport.
Before you start. Here are few recommendations on things you will need to make these Easy Football Stadium Cookies:
- Baking Mat – If you don’t have some of these yet, please do yourself a favor and get some. They are inexpensive and I promise you that you will use them 1,000,000 times. Don’t believe me on their awesomeness? Check out the thousand+ 5 star reviews.
- Parchment Paper – You need it. You can’t make these without it. I like to buy the parchment paper that is pre-cut. In the long run it is cheaper. And now I’m spoiled by not having to tear it. I know, first world problems.
- Sprinkles – The right sprinkles are key. You need the little ball sprinkles to represent all of the fans cheering in the crowd. These sprinkles scream happy, so I’m sure you will use them on everything – ice cream, pretzels, cookies, etc. I consider it an investment. Ok, maybe not, but I really like these! :)
- Green Sugar Crystals – Sometimes I am highly annoyed with how difficult it can be for me to find sprinkles in basic colors at our local stores. And sugar crystals aren’t any different. I try to stock up with the seasons (St. Patrick’s Day or Christmas for green) but sometimes, they just can’t be found. If you can’t find them at your local store, Amazon is (always) a good option.
