Baseball Cookies

I made these cookies yesterday for a party in Kai's kindergarten class today. All the kids loved them and kept hugging Kai. It was so cute! 
Here is the recipe! I got inspiration from here. And for more Tasty Tuesday recipes, click here to check some out! 

Baseball sugar cookies

¾ sugar 

½ melted shortening

2 eggs, beaten

1 ts. Vanilla

2 cups flour

2 ts. Baking powder

½ ts. Salt

Blend sugar with shortening. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Sift together in another bowl; flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the eggs and shortening mixture. Mix well and chill until its easy to handle. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. 

Roll to 1/8 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter or shape circles with a knife. 
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.  
I had a great homemade icing I wanted to use, but just didnt have enough time (and didn't have one of the ingredients!) I used store bought icing and melted it in a bowl for about 30 seconds. 
Once cookies are cooled, ice the cookies. 
Use a cup or something, to create baseball lines for the stitching. 
Use gel paste and follow the cup lines, to guide you. 
Place the cookies in the refrigerator for about 25 minutes, to allow the icing to set. 
Place them on your favorite platter, and you're good to go!


  1. Too cute! I did something like this for Cayman's softball team last season. I just colored the icing bright yellow like a softball and made cupcakes. I may try these cookies for this season. Thanks for sharing!
