I hate board games. I just wanna win already. But with this version of Scrabble, I win even if I lose ‘cuz I can eat the letter pieces!
True story. I was one of those kids who never liked board games. They reminded me of being home sick from school. Except playing War with my cousins (who ultimately went to Annapolis and the Air Force Academy). Now that was fun. And except for Monopoly. I love Monopoly. I own Monopoly. I should’ve been a business mogul.
And Scrabble is a wicked blast too. Words are natch for me. Some might say that’s ‘cuz I won’t shut up.
So check out this best-ever version of Scrabble I saw on the ‘net and just had to make — except easier with Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. You can make ‘em too. In fact, this would be a great rainy day activity for the kids to bake and play.
Flour up a cutting board and rolling pin. Roll out the dough really thin, like this:
Then cut it into squares the size of those little Scrabble letters.
After I made those cuts I chilled the dough, board and all, because it’s summer and my dough was getting a bit soft. But then they were super easy to flip onto a cookie sheet with a spatula.
Bake until they’re nice and golden brown all over — the shade of Scrabble letter tiles!
Remove to a cooling rack.
Then use Betty Crocker Cookie Icing to frost a space for the letter. Ok, so maybe this isn’t totes authentic to have white letter tiles, but are you gonna complain? You’re gonna eat them!
Edible markers (I know! What an invention!) let you write the letters easily. Use your own game board with the cookie pieces. Ante up! And at the end of the game, eat the pieces you’ve won!
Turn Off the Oven
Ok, so besides those uber adorable game-piece cookie bits, which are just way too cute not to try, it might be too hot to bake in the summertime. When that’s the case, try our collection of best-ever no-bake desserts!
