Check out these delicious Gator Cookies by Deb and Tony.
We were invited over to watch their football alma mater play in a bowl game. A new talent of discovered – the gift of baking Florida Gator cookies, beautifully and fanatically decorated using toothpicks, white, blue and orange pastry tubes. Check out the lovely free-hand Gators. Alton Brown of the Food Network was the source of their recipe and the sugar cookies for the Sugar Bowl were delicious.
Here is an equally nice recipe by Marilyn Southard.
1 lb. real butter
1 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. sugar
1 c powdered sugar
6 cups of flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, egg, cream cheese and vanilla till fluffy. Add sugars and flour. Roll out and cut as needed into shapes… I love to cut this into squares to serve guests when they come for tea. Bake 11-13 minutes.
Happy Food on Friday’s,
Cream cheese! That sounds like a nice cookie! (The Gators are super-cute)
Trish…Please explain how to get the Gator picture on the cookies!!! Thanks! These are adorable!!
