Pretzels....sort of a staple at any cliche football watching party...at least in my head, and that's really where the most important rules are made and followed...my head. I saw this super cute idea for pretzel shaped cookies here. I had to try it out. Instead of buying the Lintzer cookie cutter (available on Amazon), I found a 'vintage' cookie cutter on sale at Etsy. They are a big bigger.
Add some clear karo syrup (1 T. per cuup of icing...give or take) to make the icing harden (after it sit out for a few hours) so you can bag up your cookies. I also added some coarse sugar sprinkles to look like salt, and then bagged up my cookies in brown bags. I know the deliver will matter to the men, oh yes, it'll be their favorite part....in my head, it's important.
