Nutty and Beefy Football Cookies

What's a football party without cookies in the shape of footballs? But there's no need to bake. Just pick up some peanut butter sandwich cookies in the shape of big flat peanuts. You can carve them into the ball shape and julienne the meat sticks into laces.

Ingredients

One 4-pack peanut-shaped peanut butter-filled sandwich cookies

1 slim smoked-meat stick

Directions

  1. Using a paring knife, scrape the peanut-shell texture off the top and bottom of each cookie, then whittle the edges until it becomes more of a football shape. 
  2. Julienne the meat stick the long way, cut the strips into smaller pieces and position some atop each cookie to look like football laces. It's meaty. It's nutty. It scores!
