The Basic Fundamentals

The Royal Icing is used to prepare the Buckeye Footballs, too. However, due to the softer nature of the peanut butter & chocolate layers in the tartlets, it’s best to pipe the design closer to serving time for the prettiest results. 

1 1/2 {8-oz} packages cream cheese, softened & divided
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup plain yellow cornmeal
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream 
9 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
3 oz bittersweet chocolate morsels
Royal Icing

Beat 4-ounces cream cheese & the butter with a stand mixer until smooth. Scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Blend in the flour & the cornmeal on Low speed until a dough forms. Cover & chill 1 hour. Roll the dough on a floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness. Place a 4-inch barquette or oval tartlet mold over the surface. Cut around the shape using a paring knife leaving a 1/8-inch border. Flip the mold over & press the dough into the mold, trimming the excess away. Repeat with the remaining dough rerolling as necessary. Chill 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Pierce the bottom of the dough all over with a fork & place on a half sheet pan. Line the molds with parchment paper & fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake 8 minutes. Remove the weights & bake an additional 5 minutes or until cooked throughly. Remove the crusts from the molds & place on a wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Beat the remaining 8-ounces cream cheese, the sugar & the vanilla with an electric mixer until light, fluffy & smooth. Add the peanut butter & blend 10 seconds on Low speed, just until incorporated. Beat 3/4 cup whipping cream in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Pipe or spread the mixture into the crusts leaving 1/16-inch from the top. Chill 2 hours.

Microwave the remaining 9 tablespoons cream & the chocolate in a glass bowl on High power 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds. Whisk the mixture until completely smooth. Let stand at room temperature 25 minutes. Gently stir the mixture using a rubber spatula & pour it into the baked pastry shell over the peanut butter mixture. Chill 4 hours to 24 hours. Prepare the Royal Icing as directed. Place in a piping bag fit with a No. 1 tip. Pipe lines over the surface of each tartlet to resemble football laces. Serve immediately.

The Extra Point

Make the footballs in a variety of sizes. Barquette molds are readily available from fine cook stores in 3 & 4-inch shapes.

The Technique

Measuring peanut butter can be sticky business. Use dry measuring cups to capture accurate amounts. Coat the interior with cooking spray, then use a rubber spatula to fill & level evenly by swiping the surface flat.
