Whether you're making concession cookies, team treats, or baseball party favors, these designs are sure to be a HOME RUN! This new tutorial and kit features SEVEN designs. Make just one cookie or make them all!

This tutorial is fun because there is a little cutter flipping...does this baseball bat look familiar?

You guessed it! It's the Milk Bottle! 

And I used rainbow nonpareils on the Baseball Field Cookie (Hooray for the extra crunchy vanilla flavor!) 

Cookie Yield

With a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-22 average sized cookies. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.

Prepping the Royal Icing

If you're making ALL seven cookies, you'll need quite a few icing colors. Feel free to focus on just one or two cookies if you're new to decorating. 

For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).

ICING GUIDE

 

Use this list to know what icing consistencies are needed for each set.

Leaf Green - 2 oz (pipe and flood)
Super Red - 1 oz (pipe only)

These amounts are ESTIMATES. When it comes to how much icing to make, l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.

Project Timeline

Plan ahead to enjoy the most success with your cookie project! I break up the decorating process. It works better with my life to do a little each day. Here is the schedule for this cookie project and estimated times on how long each phase takes.

DAY 1 

Mix Dough (30 mins), Chill Dough (2 hours inactive time), Roll and Bake (1 hour), Mix Royal Icing and Prep Icing Colors - it is helpful to make the colors the day before you decorate because the color will deepen overnight. (1 hour). 

DAY 2 

Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies, but 6 hours before stenciling on the surface of the cookie). Piping details and stenciling (2 hours). The details take a little extra time due to drying the apple layers in the bushel and the cart.

**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**
