My son joined the Cub Scouts last year, we used these cookie for his Derby
event however they would be perfect for the Blue and Gold Banquet as well.
Here is my standard roll-out cookie recipe.
Nordic roll-out Cookies
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 ¾ cups raw sugar
¼ Cups Agave Nectar
4 cups Unbleached flour
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cardamon
½ orange Tablespoons orange zest/oil
½ scraped vanilla bean
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350
2 Tablespoons Crisco
2 Tablespoons Light Karo Syrup
7 Cups Powdered Sugar
4 Tablespoons Meringue Powder
1/2 Cup Water
Flavoring of your choice
Color of your choice
Now that are cookie dough and icing is made it’s time to really get to work.
I rolled them out about 1/4 inch thick. For complete step by step instructions
for my Nordic Roll out cookies and icing follow this link:
One you have baked your cookies you will begin to flood them.
I chose blue and gold to tie in with the Boy Scout Fluer De Lis. Meaning Duty to God,
and Country, Duty to Self and Duty to Others.
Once you have allowed the cookies to dry for atlas 8 hours you can bag them.
I continue to allow them to air for another 4 to 6 hours before
Another great addition would be to add the Chapter # on top of them.
I simply didn’t have time.
