Step 1 Roll out dough Roll out the dough with the rolling pin. Press the cookie cutter into the dough to form individual cookies and transfer them to a cookie sheet.
Step 2 Bake Bake as directed or until golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely.
Step 3 Divide icing Divide the icing into thirds. Color one third orange, using the yellow food coloring and adding a few drops of red. Color one third green, using the yellow food coloring with a few drops of blue. Color the rest using the blue food coloring.
Step 4 Frost Frost the cookies using the spatula or butter knife. For cookies shaped in the letters U and F, frost them using either the blue or the orange, and use the opposite color for piping.
Step 5 Make a Gator Use the green icing to frost the cookies shaped like the Gator mascot. Frost the Gator’s jersey with the orange. Let the icing dry completely.
Let dry six hours or overnight for best results.
Step 6 Pipe Use the opposite color, either blue or orange, in the pastry bag and a fine tip to pipe a border around the letters or make a letter ‘F’ on the Gator’s jersey. Victory is sweet!
