Do you have a Dad or family member who loves to camp? Make them these You Just ‘Camp’ Be Beat Cookies!
We are a camping family. Tent camping. We have camped on the beach and in the mountains. We spent a week one summer camping along the Natchez Trace Parkway. I won’t lie, a week in a tent is a long time. That trip we only stayed at each campsite for a night or two and then moved along down the trail. Though my favorite camping trip was the time we went to Big Bend National Park. The landscape was amazing, different from anywhere I had been before. Plus we did a day trip to Marfa where I met America Ferrera.
This summer my husband is taking a group of boys for a week-long camping and canoe trip! He recently built a canoe, and while they will take the one they built they will also be renting other canoes so there will be enough room. While I grew up tent camping, it is a little more complicated when you are the adult. Which is why, with quite a bit of camping under our belts, I came up with my list of camping essentials.
With so much camping going on, it only seemed fitting to make some camping cookies for Father’s Day this year. I love puns, and am calling these my camp be beat cookies! While I am making my camp be beat cookies for Father’s Day, they would also be perfect for any camping related party. These cookies are 3 inch by 3 inch squares. I didn’t have a square cookie cutter so after rolling out the sugar cookie dough I simply used a ruler to measure the size and a knife to cut out the cookies.
I also designed a fun printable to go along with the cookies. You can get the free printable HERE.
