Superbowl Cookies

Every Superbowl party needs fun snacks!  I was searching for recipes and I couldn't pass up these football shaped filbert cookies.  I have never made nor even tried filbert cookies, but now that I have, I think I'm in love.
Hazelnut is one of my favorite flavors, and paired with chocolate, it is to die for.  I used this recipe from  The recipe calls for a football shaped cookie cutter, which is a little hard to find on short notice.  My roommate, Amy, had the great idea to bend a round cookie cutter into a football shape, which worked just fine.

Amy and I decked out for the last Steelers game.  We weren't smiling very much last night when they lost, but the food was good!
I just saw this post from Bakerella about her Superbowl Sweets.  Wowzer, she puts my cookies to shame.  I still can't wait to try to make cake pops!
