I am not a sports minded person. Not at all. I never played soccer as a kid. I was more into picking flowers than playing outfield during PE. In fact, I loved the rain back then, because rain meant all the PE classes would play “basketball” in the gym and I could hide out undetected.
However, despite my aversion to sweat and the outdoors, we (along with 99% of other families) enrolled Jordan in soccer. I think she enjoys it. Here is how she plays defense:
I guess the music in her head is louder than her coach yelling “WATCH THE BALL JORDAN!”
She loves the social aspect of sports more than the actual sport itself.
What do I love about soccer season? Snack day. Where most parents shudder at the thought of bringing snacks for the team, I love it. Before the season even starts I’m thinking about what I should make.
These Soccer Crispy Treats were inspired by these adorable treats by Cookies and Cups. The soccer balls are sugar cookies with royal icing. I used a black food writer to make the soccer markings. (Yes, I apparently have way too much time on my hands.)
The one problem with making such cute treats for the soccer stars of tomorrow? They could care less how they look. They barely look at them as they scarf them down in their post-game hunger. But it’s the thought that counts, right?
