It's finally our year...
the year the Seahawks are in the Super Bowl! WA-HOO!!!!
To celebrate, I've created a special cookie in honor of the "12th man," the Seahawk's fans... for us who are loud & proud, and blue & green!

½ c. butter (room temp.)

½ c. coconut oil (melted)

1 c. sugar

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 large egg

1 Tbsp. vanilla

2 c. flour

¼ tsp. salt

½ tsp. baking powder

lots of blue food coloring

Cream Cheese Frosting:

½ c. unsalted butter

1 package cream cheese (8oz.)

2-3 c. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

lots of green food coloring

If you are going to a party with lots of fans, feel free to double the recipe.

For the cookie, blend together all the wet ingredients. Then add the dry ingredients, adding the flour little by little. For the blue color, keep adding until you get a dark blue. (By the way, this is going to take a lot of food coloring. Feel free to add less... but dark blue is the way to go for true color!
Roll out the dough flat, about 1/4 inch thick, and cut out small sized circles. I used the rim of a champagne flute to get the right size. I made several larger ones at first, and they were just too big. Keep it small and sweet!

If you're feeling crazy, you can also carve some awesome 12's with a toothpick on the top of half of the cookies to show your pride!

Bake the cookies on a Silpat mat or non-stick parchment paper at 350* for 9-10 minutes. You want them to be firm and fully cooked, but still soft to bite.

While the cookies are baking, whip up some cream cheese frosting, blending the butter and the cream cheese first, then add the powdered sugar little by little for the right consistency. Slightly firm frosting is good, so when you blend it, it should forms peaks. Add green food coloring little by little for the right green. (Again, this takes quite a bit, but adjust to your own color desires.)

When the cookies are all baked and cooled, make sandwiches with the frosting in the middle. Serve to your fellow '12th Man' (aka. Seahawk's fans) on the big day!
