Clemson Tiger Paw Cookies

We had friends over to watch the Clemson vs. Va Tech game in October so I thought that would be a great opportunity to try out my Clemson Tiger Paw cookie cutter! Our friends are Va Tech fans so I made Hokie cookies for them too. I decided on sugar cookies so I could do frosting in orange.

Here is the cookie cutter I have. There are 3 sizes and I have the little one and the  medium one (still need the big one). I used a Thanksgiving turkey cookie cutter for the Hokie cookies, close enough right?


Cookie Pops

My friend Katie mentioned cookie pops to me when I told her what I was making so tried it out. For 2 of the cookies I stuck wooden skewers a little more than halfway into the dough before I put them in the oven. Knowing we didn't plan on eating these 2, I let them cook an extra minute or 2 so they would be a little sturdier. Then I put them in a purple bucket filled with marbles and packing peanuts so they would stand up for a great table decoration!

I used store bought frosting to ice the cookies. They actually had orange for Halloween but it was a light orange so I added orange food coloring and mixed it up for a Clemson orange. Next time I might try to do fancier looking icing by piping it on instead of just using a knife.

Here was the whole table set up. We fixed a nacho bar for dinner: shredded chicken in the crock pot, melted cheese in crock pot, and loads of toppings. We also had fruit with whipped cream to dip it in.

I love using all of my fun Clemson servingware!
