Baseball cookies

Here’s another entry on the baseball theme… My son’s T-ball season ended today, it was his first time playing and I think he did great. The coach had the end of the year pizza party and I made some cookies for the boys.
Baseball cookies are probably one of the easiest to make…Simple round cutter and minimal icing. This time I used rolled fondant (Satin Ice) for the white ball. I had tried this technique in the past when doing soccer balls and some Christmas cookies ~ for me it’s just easier to roll out the fondant and use the same cookie cutter to cut the exact right sized ball. I brushed each cookie with a touch of corn syrup to help the fondant stick and then piped on the stitching and each player’s name with royal icing.
No summer sports for us unless you count my older son training for cross country…guess I had better figure out how to make a sneaker!

I LOVE the red with the black names! That's it…I HAVE to try fondant! Do you order yours or get it locally?

I may have to try these. My son's last regular game is next week, then we have playoffs.

Bridget – I get it sort of locally =) The closest place I can get it is about 45 min, so with gas and all…the only thing is it is a great bake shop so I can always find other things to buy!

These are so cute! They are absolutely flawless. With baseball season upon us, these would be great for my turn to bring snack. I know mine wouldn't look as good as your though :(
