Softball Cookies

pink round cookies decorated to look like softballs on white plate

{Or Baseball Cookies. If you have boys. But then you might want to leave them white. Or dye them blue. Unless your son really likes pink.}

So…remember how much I was dreading softball?

It wasn’t so bad. {Yes, I’m eating my crowe and liking it thankyouverymuch.}

One caveat thought…I think I didn’t mind it so much because half our season got rained out. If that didn’t happen? This would be a totally different post.

Jordan loves softball. She’s gotten so much better. She’s great at throwing, can hit the ball when she remembers to lift her bat up (something, btw, I am NOT ALLOWED to remind her during games under strict penalty of death by no cookies). Catching…well, she’ll get there.

She especially loves how she can sit in the dugout for half the game, and the other half she can dance hip-hop at right pitcher.

And she loves snack. Probably because of the snack bar. They have icees. And soft pretzels (which I, ahem, may have eaten one or ten times).

What I looked forward to during the season?

My snack day. (I know, that’s the day most people dread. I’m weird.)

And of course, my snack day was the same day as the teacher luncheon, volunteer tea, and a school night. So I needed something fast, easy, and feezable so I could make it ahead of time.

These are all three of those things.

Enter my Whoopie Pie Deep Dish Cookie Pan.

Seriously, this recipe is even easier than the Deep Dish Thin Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies I made. No chopping of anything. Just press the dough, add some chocolate chips, and bake.

Easy-peasy.

Of course, I also made labels. Because obviously, I have “too much time on my hands” as so many other moms like to tell me.

{We won’t go into how I feel about THAT comment.}

I made my own sugar cookie dough for this, because we had a peanut allergy on our team and I was worried about processed foods. But, by all means, use a tube of cookie dough. Dye it your favorite color, and add chocolate chips.

Easiest. Recipe. Ever.

Enjoy!

  1. My softball player would love these, she would probably do the baking too. Please share them on my foodie friday party today.

  2. People always ask me when I find “the time” to bake. Um, we all have our priorities! I start to get the shakes if I don’t create something sweet every other day or so 🙂
    This is such an adorable idea :0)

  3. These are adorable…what little boy wouldn’t love them! Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday 🙂

  4. Those cookies are perfect … easy, yummy and pink … what else could you ask for? I have 3 (old) boys … we had many happy years at the Little League field … I think that I lived in the snack bar!

    1. It’s all I can do right now not to go get a pretzel and an Icee. 🙂 Thanks for reading!

  5. PS- I told hubby about your amazing chocolate reese’s donuts. He just stared at me like ‘Ummmm… and you have not made them yet… becaaaaause??”

    LOL. I’m gonna take that as permission to buy a donut pan 😉

    1. Thanks so much! The teachers deserve it! And what are you waiting for? Go get that pan!
