Last week, I had the pleasure of making cookies for the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for two young men. They were for a friend’s son and his BFF. I haven’t seen my friend in a very long time, but keep up with on Facebook. She is hilarious!
This was an exciting assignment because I have never made Eagle Scout cookies before. Baby shower cookies? Yes, lots. Baptism cookies? Yes, lots. Birthday cookies? Yes, lots. Eagle Scout Cookies? No
I thought it would be cool to make cookies with each of the tenets in the Scout law. Don’t pay too close of attention to the order, I am obviously not a Boy Scout.
Then I made cookies with the Eagle Scout patch and an eagle. I was really pleased with how both turned out. Originally I swore that I wouldn’t attempt to make either one of those cookies, because I thought it would be too hard. But I’m glad I did.
My favorite, though, was the cookie that said, “Houston, the Eagle has landed.” I knew my friend would appreciate that one.
Congrats Tommy and Riley. Becoming an Eagle Scout is quite an accomplishment!
