All right team, we got a game to win. I want to see all of you out there sporting your game-day best, cheering at an unhealthy decibel, and supporting the gentlemen and their hearts that carry on a tradition we can be proud. Hail to the Victors!
¼ stick butter
¾ cup of sugar
1 Tablespoon cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 and ¼ cup of flour
¼ teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
Preheat your oven… (like the Sam McGuffie is warming up right now!)
In your standing mixer (be it human or kitchen appliance) add your softened butter and sugar and whip it (like Michigan whopped the Gators at last year’s Bowl Game.) When fluffy, add the egg, cream and vanilla, and continue whopping. I added the flour, salt and baking soda all at once. Keep the party going until everything is fully incorporated but just mixed (like Rich Rodriguez’s Spread Offense).
On parchment paper or a slipmat, lay out spoonfuls of cookie batter (like Mike Martin layed out the Miami QB, so hard he lost his shoes.) Sprinkle generously with the decorating sugar colors of your choice... (ehmmm Maize and Blue are the only acceptable colors.) Bake them for 10-15 or until lightly golden on the edges (not burned to crisp like the Fighting Irish tomorrow).
Happy Baking, Much Love, and Go Blue!
