Peanut Butter Football Cookies

As many of you know, we've got the Green Bay Packers & the Super Bowl on our minds. Only a few more days until the big game!
Last night @ my mom's house we made some yummy peanut butter cookies in the shape of footballs...
We used this recipe from Allrecipes.com Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies
(Added bonus, no dairy in the cookies so M1 can enjoy an unfrosted one as well!)
We shaped the balls into small ovals & then pinched the edges before putting them in the oven & they definitely took the shape of footballs while baking.
Next, we frosted them with store bought chocolate frosting...
Mixed up some white piping made with a mixture of powdered sugar & water.
Mixed well until the consistency of toothpaste & piped on some "strings."
(*I bought the "ketchup-like" bottle @ Michael's for super cheap... it works so well for frosting cakes & cookies.)

They turned out super cute. We can't wait to eat & share with friends on Sunday evening.
Will you be watching the Super Bowl come Sunday? Cheering for the Packers as well??!!! 
Enjoy! s.b.
