Let's Go Patriots!!!

To cheer on our beloved team the New England Patriots, we decided to make some cookies with some team spirit. We cut out cookies in the shape of footballs and team shirts:)  And with the best recipe from Grandma Ruth, these are sure to be a hit for the big game.  And yes, we are amateurs at decorating....

Grandma Ruth's Cut out Cookies

2 c sugar
1 c shortening (I used butter)

Cream together. Then mix:
1 c sour cream
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
5 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground nutmeg

Refrigerate till chilled. Roll out, and cut.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  Let cool. And have fun frosting.  :)
