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?
