Football Brownie-Cookies – No Cookie Cutters Necessary!

It's a cookie that tastes like a brownie and looks like a football!



Let's Bake!

Once you have your cookie dough made up, lay out a piece of parchment paper and scoop the cookie dough onto it, in a log shape. The dough should be about 3″ wide and 3″ high. Leave about 4″ empty on each end.


Roll the dough up into a log. Then shape the log into a square, so that there are four sides.


Smooth out one of the sides using your hand or by rolling that angle on the counter top. Flip the log over and do the same on the opposite side.


Put the logs onto a cookie sheet and freeze for several hours or overnight. Once completely frozen, unwrap and cut into 3/4″ pieces.


Bake for 11-13 minutes at 350 degrees. The cookies will seem undercooked but will continue to firm up as they cool. Tip: Use the parchment that they were wrapped in to line your sheet pan.


Melt white chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. You may have to microwave an additional 15-30 seconds and stir again.  It’s easy to burn chocolate in the microwave so don’t over-do it. Then cut a tiny piece off the corner of a plastic baggie. Fill the baggie with melted chocolate and pipe laces on the cooled football cookies, trying your best not to eat them since the house now smells like brownies and melted chocolate.
