Baseball Cookies Recipe
It’s baseball season. If you are doing a sports theme with your Cub Scouts, why not make some baseball cookies?
These cookies are easy for Cubs to make because they start with store bought cookies. Basically they are just decorating them. Of course, you can make your own cookies also.
- 1 package sugar cookies or plain vanilla sandwich cookies
- 1 can vanilla frosting
- 1 tube red decorator gel
- Spread the cookies out on a tray.
- Spread the frosting on the top of each cookie.
- Use the red decorator gel to make the “stitches” on the baseball.
As an alternative to the frosting, melt together 2 cups white chocolate chips or vanilla candy bark with 1 tablespoon shorting. Dip the cookies in mixture to coat. This method is better for older children who can do it without risking a burn.
Most Cub Scouts know all about their favorite baseball team. Why not have a baseball themed meeting then? Cub Scouts can learn about honesty while doing activities related to America’s pastime. BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Play Ball related to this value.
This is another baseball themed pack idea. It relates to Obedient in the Scout Law. “It is easy to forget how important it is to be obedient to the rules when one is playing a game and really wanting to win; however, a Cub Scout is a person who always follows the rules.”
