I’m super excited to show you my first monthly blog post with Cookie Cutter Kingdom!! This company has an amazing variety and selection of cookie cutters, including animals, sports, and holiday-themed ones, and you can pick sizes between 2″ to 5″. If you still can’t find the exact cookie cutter you’re looking for, you can ask CCK to make a custom-cutter specially for you! These cutters are great for cookies but who says they can’t also be used for savory foods?!
Whether you get together with your friends for the Super Bowl to watch the actual game, halftime show, or just the commercials, there always need to be awesome game day snacks involved! I used the 4-inch Football Helmet Cookie Cutter to cut out football helmet-shaped pieces of dough and then filled them with beef and cheese for a winning flavor combination.
These beef empanadas satisfy every craving for something meaty, cheesy, and flaky and are sure to be a crowd pleaser. To make them even better, I served them with guacamole on the side. They can also be prepared the day before to make your life a little easier if you’re hosting the party this year.
These are perfect for the Super Bowl, football team celebrations, football-themed birthday parties, or just a fun addition to a meal during the week!
Head over to CCK for the recipe and directions!
