Cheering on the Gators will be that much sweeter with these tasty treats in your mouth.

You will need

  • Sugar cookie dough
  • Royal icing
  • Red
  • yellow
  • and blue food coloring
  • Equipment:
  • Rolling pin
  • UF-logo cookie cutters
  • Pastry bag
  • Pastry tips

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.

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!
