Classic Baseball Shortbread



CAPSULE REPORT: Delicious shortbread cookies for gifts, party favors, or just for the sheer enjoyment of a delicious piece of shortbread. To produce its products, the company works with two organizations that support the disadvantaged: one helps adults and children with Down syndrome and the other enhances the quality of life for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment.


We don’t even follow baseball, but we were delighted to receive a tin of these captivating Classic Baseball Shortbread cookies. Imagine how happy they’ll make true sports fans!

The rich, traditional shortbread cookies in the regulation size and shape of baseballs (3" diameter) are made by hand and baked in small batches, just outside of the world baseball capital of Cooperstown, New York. Fresh, light and fragrant with butter, they melt in your mouth. Unlike some shortbreads-on-the-shelf that can be a bit al dente, you can give a tin of these to Grandpa or the tween with braces without worrying about damage to the dental work. 

Each tin includes a tricky baseball trivia question. This gift will make the day of a baseball nut; and anyone who loves good shortbread will be thankful that proprietor Pati Drumm Grady put her family shortbread recipe to such good use. The cookies are all natural with no preservatives or additives—just flour, butter, sugar, pure vanilla extract and salt.


You can enjoy your shortbread in:

  • Almond
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Classic
  • Lemon

While Chocolate Chip may sound the most appealing, our votes go to Classic and Lemon (we didn’t taste the Almond)—and lots of both, please!

Nobody will be seeking any peanuts and Crackerjack® when Cooperstown Baseball Shortbread is within arm’s reach. Order the large size tins for your own enjoyment—they disappear quickly! A nice option are the Bunts, 1-3/4" diameter cookies that are just big enough to provide a satisfactory taste—as a snack, with a beverage or with a dish of ice cream.
