Cookies for the Super Bowl

Because the Steelers are headed to their 3rd Super Bowl in six years…

Because I bleed Black and Gold…

And because I love cookies…

Dessert first. I will be sharing a lot of great Super Bowl party menu items over the next two weeks, but first let’s do cookies. Here are three football-themed cookies that would be perfect to serve at your Super Bowl party:

1. Football Sugar Cookies
A football cookie cutter is used to make these basic football sugar cookies. Decorate them with your team’s colors!

2. Pittsburgh Steelers Logo Cookies
I bought a Steelers cookie mold on eBay a few years ago, which came in handy for these logo cookies. I used royal icing for everything except for ‘Steelers’ which I pressed out of black fondant.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey Cookies
I used a jersey cookie cutter to make these cookies and customize them with Steelers colors and player names and numbers.

Steelers vs. Packers in two weeks…

    Adorable! Congrats to your team!


  3. Aku on January 24, 2011 at 6:24 am

    Ha! This made me laugh. I love it! Being over the other side of the pond I’ll have no cause for making Superbowl cookies but I love your devotion!

    I couldn’t wait to post to you with the STEELERS going to the SUPER BOWL! The cookies look great and the footballs look more my ability at best. I had thought about cookie dough thru a ricer somehow to make Troy’s hair…naaa.
    (I am going to mention here in time to research if needed that City Chicken will be on my menu.I was trying to think of foods that say Pittsburgh area to me.That is a regional food and perfect for a party. Meat on a stick! My family always uses veal and pork.)

    I love your cookies! They are fantastic! I am so excited we’re going to the Super Bowl again!


  6. TAH on January 24, 2011 at 6:57 am

    I must tell you (because I love your post) ((and because I’m not ashamed of making a fool of myself!)), my twin sister is SO into the Steelers (((and I’m a gay boy into baking… ya think something went wrong?!?))) and every time she talks about the Steelers I have to roll my eyes. I am so NOT into football, so much so that when I first began reading your post and saw “Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey Cookies” I thought to myself – “How silly! Pittsburgh is in PA, not NJ!”

    Anyway, now that I got that off my chest, just wanted you to know how great your post is… you are very creative and inspiring.


  7. linda on January 24, 2011 at 7:10 am

  8. Amanda on January 24, 2011 at 7:10 am

    Go Steelers! Penny, city chicken is such a good idea!


  9. Estela @ Weekly Bite on January 24, 2011 at 7:27 am

  10. Katrina on January 24, 2011 at 7:37 am

    All the cookies are so cute! Love it.


  11. Caroline on January 24, 2011 at 8:30 am

    I was so hoping the Bears would make it to the Super Bowl, I was dying to make some Chicago Bears cookies. Guess it will just be footballs this year! Your cookies are adorable, love them!


  12. Liz on January 24, 2011 at 8:49 am

    Nothing against you (I still LOVE your baking!) but I hate the Steelers :) I think it stems from my hatred of Pitt college basketball. But the cookies look great 😉


  13. The Food Hound on January 24, 2011 at 8:53 am

    I resisting the urge to hurl Steelers insults… but you DID beat the Jets, and that was appreciated. The Pats are our team… you can understand our pain :) But you have to respect those who bleed the colors (blue, red and silver; black and gold respectively…) so I say a whole-hearted congratulations, and I love your dessert ideas! I would just change the color scheme… for next year :)


  14. Charles Zivotsky on January 24, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Love your sit, but c’mon, how ’bout my Packers, eh?


  15. Marilyn on January 24, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Congratulations on your team, my team the Patriots sadly were out a little earlier.
    You are so talented, I wouldn’t begin to be able to make and decorate these cookies, but I just love the pictures. Keep up the good work!!!


  16. Ryan on January 24, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Haha, those are awesome! Will definitely have to make some of those for my dad, but before the Super Bowl, because he got tickets and is going. So excited haha.
    All the recipes you posted are absolutely adorable, and I love your blog!


  17. Paula on January 24, 2011 at 9:37 am

    Great cookies! Good luck to your team!


  18. Kathy in Greendale on January 24, 2011 at 10:01 am

    I will try this…but mine will be green and gold, sporting names such as RODGERS, MATTHEWS, WILLIAMS, DRIVER, HAWK, RAJI, WOODSON, and JENNINGS. Thanks for the idea, and good luck to your team. =) Go Pack!


  19. Darla @ Bakingdom on January 24, 2011 at 10:24 am

    Congrats to the Steelers! You must be soooo stoked!

    We’re not huge football fans, but if we were, this is our team of choice this year! I’m actually an Indiana girl, so I love me my Colts! :) But since the hubster hails from PA, the Steelers are always my second choice!

    Love the cookies! Very well done, and the footballs are probably my favorite! So cute!


  20. Eftychia on January 24, 2011 at 10:31 am

    So beautiful these cookies. They look tasty, delicious, yummyyyy!!!


  21. CathyN on January 24, 2011 at 10:41 am

    I thought of you yesterday when the Steelers won! I know how you feel, I’m a huge Saints fan and last season was surreal to say the least. Congrats for your team! The cookies are terrific!


  22. Becky on January 24, 2011 at 11:25 am

    I wanted to make Chicago Bears cookies, but I guess I’ll have to wait till next year, which is the chant of Chicago sport fans, except for Blackhawks fans;( I’ll be making the football cookies


  23. Belinda @zomppa on January 24, 2011 at 11:34 am

    If these cookies weren’t so darn cute, I’d be mad. Patriots got robbed!!!!

  36. Annie on January 24, 2011 at 9:04 pm



  37. Jane on January 24, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    These are very cute cookies. But just imagine the cute little cheeseheads you could make if you were rooting for the team that will win the Superbowl. It’s time for the Lombardi trophy to visit it’s home. But, have an enjoyable time!


  38. Mikaela Cowles on January 24, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    I can imagine my brother’s friends trying to hike your football cookies into their mouths after several Super Bowl drinks. Goodness, the mess they would make!


  39. Sandra on January 24, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    You are a true fan and the cookies are really cute. Looking forward to the rest of your party picks.


  40. Diana on January 24, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    Here we go, Steelers, here we go!! Pittsburgh’s going to the Suuuuuuuperbowl!

    Awesome cookies! :o)

    congratulation for your team, hope they win


  43. Mary on January 25, 2011 at 12:11 am

    Just discovered your site this weekend. Love your writing style. The photos are amazing! Will you show us a Terrible Towel cookie?

    Wish I was back in PGH. so I can celebrate withall these Steeler fans!


  44. Laura on January 25, 2011 at 10:48 am

    I know you don’t know me & I don’t really know you, but I TOTALLY thought of you when the Steelers won! I knew you’d be super excited and I thought of your Steeler cookies. We have a Super Bowl party every year and I make a stadium cake decorated with the team colors.

    Looks like I’ll be using black, gold, yellow, and green M&M’s this year. ;o)


  45. Cookin' Canuck on January 25, 2011 at 11:38 am

    I thought of you as I watched the Steelers accept the conference trophy on Sunday. These cookies are the perfect way to celebrate!


  46. Kim on January 25, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    I think you should offer some packer recipes and treats because some of your readers are from the frozen tundra and have to make some wonderful treats for the big Packer win next Saturday! 😉 Enjoy the game!


  47. Ann on January 25, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    I’m from New England and we’re still licking our wounds. But these cookies could cheer me up. They’re great. They’d be a hit at any superbowl party!


  48. Leticia on January 25, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    I made the jersey and football cookies for the playoff game against the Ravens! They got GREAT reviews. Some people actually didn’t want to eat they because they were so pretty!
    I usually do my menu based on the city where the game is being played. It usually gives you a new dish and makes you feel like you are there! LOL! My favorite was Miami, we had mojitos and cuban sandwiches……..and I found GREAT recipes for both! This year, of course, will be Tex Mex fo Dallas!


  49. Winelady Cooks on January 25, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    Your cookies are so perfect. You are an inspiration to me – I must try my hand at decorating my cookies. I haven’t been too successful doing this yet, but I’m going to keep trying.

    Thanks for inspiring, oh and “Go Team”!


  50. Lauren from Lauren's Latest on January 25, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Bet you’re going to have an awesome Superbowl party! I’ll have to get some football cookie cutters……Good luck to your team, Michelle!
