Step 1: Beat ingredients Beat the sugar, butter, ginger, egg, and cinnamon in a large bowl for three minutes. The combination should be light and fluffy. Step 2: Add flour Slowly combine the flour into the bowl while beating the mixture on a low speed. Once the flour is combined and mixed into the ingredients, the dough will form. Step 3: Chill the dough Chill the dough for an hour before baking the cookies. Chilled dough sticks together better than warm dough, and the chilled dough will be easier to form into shapes. Step 4: Roll out dough Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a 1/8-inch thickness. Step 5: Cut out football shapes Use the cookie cutter to cut out football shapes. Spray the cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and place the shapes 1 inch apart on the sheet. Tip Check that the cookie sheet is cool or at room temperature before you put your dough on it. If your cookie sheet is too warm the dough could melt, which could affect the texture of the baked cookie. Step 6: Bake cookies Bake the cookies at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned and the edges are firm. Step 7: Cool cookies Cool the cookies before you decorate them. The icing and piping could melt on warm cookies, making the decorations look sloppy. Step 8: Decorate cookies Decorate the cookies with chocolate icing. Pipe white icing to resemble the lacing on a football. They're sure to be a touchdown with everyone. Did You Know? In 2003, a company in North Carolina baked the world's largest cookie weighing in at 37,000 pounds.
