Football Blossom Cookies

by Kristen

The football lovers in your family will love these ” Football Blosoom” Cookies! These football blossom cookies are similar to peanut butter blossoms. Still, instead of a Hershey Kiss in the middle, I added a chocolate-covered almond and easily decorated it to look like a bit of football! This peanut butter cookie dough is super easy to make, and I used white chocolate melts and a toothpick to decorate the footballs in just a few minutes!  

 

As a mom of three sons, football plays a big part of our life from early summer until the middle of winter. We watch multiple colleges and professional football games each weekend, we attend numerous little league games, and we even moved a bunch of furniture in our kitchen so our kids could “play football” for fun.

My kids were so excited when they saw these Football Blossom Cookies! Regular peanut butter blossoms are one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes! All you need is a few easy ingredients and a few minutes of patience while you make these footballs easily with some melted white chocolate and a toothpick.

Ingredients

Creamy Peanut Butter

Brown Sugar

Softened Butter

Egg

All-Purpose Flour

Baking Soda

Baking Powder

Salt

Pure Vanilla Extract

Chocolate Covered Almonds for the footballs. Chocolate Covered Peanuts might also work for the football 

White Candy Melts for the football laces. You can also use frosting

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, mix beat together butter, peanut butter, sugar, and egg with an electric mixer or a stand mixer.
  3. In a second bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the butter/peanut butter mixture.
  4. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes
  5. Shape dough into 1-inch balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Press a chocolate-covered almond in the center of each cookie
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown
  8. Make Sure your cookies have cooled to room temperature before decorating the footballs. You want to make sure the melted chocolate has harder on the chocolate-covered almonds.
  9. Place 1/4 cup of white candy melts into a bowl and microwave for 3-4 20 second increments, stirring the candy melt in between each go. Once the chocolate has melted, use a toothpick to make the football laces onto each chocolate-covered almond.   You can also use a double boiler to melt the chocolate.
