Are you Ready for Some Football?!

OMG! It's finally Saturday! By that I mean it's the first official Saturday of football season! Being from Alabama, we get super excited around this time. Let me tell you, we had this week ( a couple of weeks ago) that just felt like football season. You know that feeling, right? There was a crisp breeze in the air. I think other places in the world call it fall.

With all that being said, I decided to celebrate the coming of football season. I made cookies!

If you've read my profile, you know that I'm a graduate of Alabama, hence the elephant cookies. Roll Tide! Hubby, however, is an Auburn fan. I know, right? He didn't specifically ask me to make Aubie cookies, but I thought I would be nice.

The elephants were fairly easy. They are just your basic pipe-then-flood cookies.

Aubie was a bit harder. They were all piping. It took me forever to pipe the black, because I was looking at my template to get it perfect. No two cookies look the same. Overall, though, I was pretty pleased with them.

So, we are going to use these cookies tonight for our in-house tailgating. I say in-house, because Alabama plays Michigan in Dallas tonight, and Auburn plays Clemson at the Georgia Dome. We also don't have tickets to either of those game (though I would have LOVED to have gone to Dallas).

This brings me to the surprise. I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY!  I'm giving away 20 Tailgate Cookies for your tailgate party! The winner will just let me know their team, and I will bake cookies specifically for he/she. Doesn't that sound great?

To enter, you just need to use the widget below. It's simple really, but if you need help, just let me know.

  9. The Aubbie cookies are not cute, but only because they're Auburn, and not because they are made by you. Elephants are super cute! Absolutely adorable! Roll Tide!
