Alabama Crimson Tide vs Florida Gators

Chalk Talk Cookies

The Southeastern Conference celebrates its 25th Anniversary on Saturday with a throwback to the original teams from 1992 that started it all at Birmingham, Alabama’s Legion Field. You can expect a sterling reunion of classic players not only by the respective offense & defense on the gridiron but on the sidelines as well. Coaches Nick Saban & Jim McElwain will meet again on opposite sides of the field.

As regular season play comes to an end, football fanatics get ready to feast on a cornucopia of playoff & bowl games that happen to coinside with holiday entertaining. Tailgating socials suddenly morph into odd, festive gatherings. Splashy holiday sweaters ring doorbells with team logo ball caps perched just above the browline. Standing tall & proud like flashy front window evergreens crowned with gold stars, die hard guests exchange quick pleasantries with Open House hosts & make a beeline to the post game matchup action on the television. Red solo cups & co-cola are packed away until next year making way for more jovial game day libations. As the season changes so do our tastes. Bourbon kissed eggnog steals the hearts of many loyalists & brandy makes a welcome entrance offering cozy sips of wassail served in punch cups adorn with holly berries & bright green leaves. 

With Christmas parties in full swing, you had better believe the sugar bowl has made its presence known. Baked goods line up in punt formation, generally aimed directly toward my mouth. Plan to diagram a few trick plays & spice up heirloom cookie musts with a few basic fundamentals. When you have good solid players on the roster, tried & true recipes that remind your of your grandmother offer endless possibilities.

Run The Option

Prepare 2 dozen large cookies by cutting 12 X-shapes with a 3-inch cutter. Cut 12 O-shapes with a 2 3/4-inch round cutter. Remove the centers from the circles with a 1 1/2-inch round cutter. Bake 18 to 22 minutes.

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 Tbsp whole buttermilk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
A pinch of kosher salt
Powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Cream the sugar, the butter, the buttermilk & the vanilla with an electric stand mixer on Medium speed until creamy. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Add the flour, the pumpkin pie spice & the salt. Blend on Low speed just until the dough comes together. Roll the dough to a 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut the dough with 1 1/2-inch “X” & “O” shaped cutters & place on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Reroll the dough as needed. 

Bake the pans, in batches, on the center rack 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown on the cookie bottoms. The tops should be pale in color. Cool completely on the pans, about 30 minutes. Coat the cookies in powdered sugar.

The Extra Point

Set up a dessert beverage bar. Organize shot glasses & mugs. Ice down milk & serve hot cocoa with loads of marshmallows for an extra special treat to enjoy with the cookies.

How To Soften Butter

 Softened butter is called for often in recipe applications. The key is to begin the mixing process whether for cakes or other baked items with butter that is the proper consistency. It shouldn’t be too firm nor too soft. You should be able to create a rudimentary butter curl with a spoon indicating that it is indeed ready to use.
