FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA: Baseball Shortbread

If Dad/Grandpa/Hubby likes baseball and a good shortbread cookie, there’s no better gift than the “baseball shortbread” from Cooperstown Cookie Company, located in baseball capital of Cooperstown, New York.

The rich, traditional shortbread cookies are handmade in the regulation size and shape of baseballs (3″ diameter). Fresh, light and fragrant with butter, they melt in your mouth.

The cookies are all natural with no preservatives or additives—just flour, butter, sugar, pure vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.

Unlike some shortbread recipes that can be a bit al dente, you can give a tin of these to Grandpa (or a kid with braces) without worrying about damage to the dental work.

Each tin—available with the logo of any Major League Baseball team—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.


Purchase online at or telephone 1.888.269.7315.
