This recipe is not only simple, but who doesn’t love sugar cookies? You can decorate them however you like. Color your favorite teams, or the teams in the Super Bowl. Either way these will surely be a hit at any party! I love cooking with a theme! What can be better than football cookies for Super Bowl?
