Baseball Cookies. Dropkick Murphys On The Stereo.

Baseball Cookies

I made these fun Baseball Cookies for my son’s HS BB banquet. They looked great and tasted wonderful.

Ingredients:

Sugar Cookies (This No Fail recipe is really good. I made 4 inch cookies and the recipe yielded 31 cookies)
Royal Icing (I tried Martha Stewart’s recipe. Another good recipe is this one.)
Red and Blue food coloring gel (You will need a lot of red to get the proper color…about 1.5 teaspoons minimum)
Pastry bag with small round tip
Plastic treat bags, optional but very cute (I used these.)

Directions:

1. Place half of the royal icing into a bowl. Divide the remaining icing between 2 smaller bowls. Tint one of these smaller bowls red and the other small bowl blue.

2. Transfer some of the white royal icing to a piping bag and outline the cookies.

3. Add enough water, a teaspoon at a time, to the remaining white royal icing to get a runny consistency.

4. “Flood” the thinned icing to fill in the cookies. A squeeze bottle makes it easy. Use a small spoon or a toothpick to guide the icing to fill in the edges. (You can see some step by step photos here.)

5. Let cookies dry, uncovered, overnight. Cover the blue and red icings so that they do not dry out.

6. To make even arcs for the baseball stitching, use the edge of the cookie cutter to make impressions.

7. Transfer red icing into a pastry bag and pipe red icing into the impressions then add the stitches.

8. Personalize each cookie with a name and a number.

9. Allow to dry for 6 hours or, ideally, overnight. Package up in the treat bags, if you like.

‘Tessie’ and Boston baseball go hand in hand.

“Boston you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don’t blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn’t live without you”

No secret that aside from the teams my boys play on, the Red Sox are where my loyalty lies. This is a fun montage from 2013.
