Elfin-style Santa Claus Cookies from a Football Cutter!

I want to put an exclamation point after all of my post titles, but it seems a bit much.

I’m afraid you might think I just put it there reflexively. I mean, could a person possibly be that excited over each and every one of these cookies?

Honestly, YES!!!
