The Super Bowl is almost here! Our house is super sad that the Cowboys won’t be playing in it this year (again), but hopefully next year we’ll have different results. Every year we throw a big party and invite our friends to come over to enjoy the game. Our house is usually packed with lots of friends and more food than we can eat. I always focus on appetizers and the main course so this year I wanted to be sure to add some fun desserts in for the big game.
I decided to make cookies with a sports field on them. The great thing about these cookies is that you can use them for most sports by making a few tweaks!
