  • 1

    Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly spray a cookie sheet.

  • 2

    On a large cutting board or crust mat, spread a small handful of flour, using extra flour to also dust your rolling pin. Unwrap cookie dough and press onto flour to flatten. Use rolling pin to roll dough very thin, making sure bottom is floured. Lightly sprinkle top and rolling pin with flour as needed to keep dough from sticking.

  • 3

    Trim edges of dough sheet straight, then cut rows of squares that are about 7/8 inch high x 6/8 inch wide. (They do not need to be perfect. If you have a Scrabble piece, just use that as a rough guideline.) If dough has softened, place board into fridge for 10 minutes so the squares are chilled and stiff.

  • 4

    Using a thin spatula, place cookie tiles on cookie sheet and bake for 6 to 8 minutes until golden brown all over. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

  • 5

    Frost with cookie frosting, using tip of pouch to spread frosting as thin as possible. Allow to dry and fully harden. Use the edible black marker to write letters on the squares. *

Expert Tips

  • Cover your Scrabble board with clear plastic wrap before using cookies on it if you want to preserve the board.
  • Scrabble has the following quantities of each letter: A (9), B (2), C (2), D (4), E (12), F (2), G (3), H (2), I (9), J (1), K (1), L (4), M (2), N (6), O (8), P (2), Q (1), R (6), S (4), T (6), U (4), V (2), W (2), X (1), Y (2), Z (1).

More About This Recipe

  • 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!

    GAME ON!

    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!


Ryan and I have always loved playing Scrabble together, even before Words with Friends and Word Feud dominated our smart phones – so when I saw a Scrabble-themed Valentine’s Day card a few years ago, I had to buy it. I’ve pulled inspiration from this card (yes he saved it, how cuuute) and from Bridget of Bake at 350 to make some lovey-dovey Scrabble-themed cookies for Valentine’s Day this year. I’ve been wanting to make these cookies ever since I saw Bridget’s post, but only just got around to it and I’m so glad I did – they’re adorable and certainly embody the “play with your food” expression.

These cookies were so fun to make and play with, and best of all they were SO easy to put together. I had some leftover sugar cookie dough in the freezer, so I just let it thaw in the fridge, rolled it out into a big rectangle, and cut squares. Then I made white royal icing to flood the backgrounds and went back the next day to pipe in the letters and numbers. I love that these only required dying one small batch of icing! I used a red food marker to make the hearts, and I could have done all the letters with a black food marker if mine hadn’t been out of ink. I used an Ateco #1 tip for the black lettering, but I wished I had a #0 or #00 especially for the teeny-tiny numbers. They’re not perfect but they certainly get the point across :)

My cookies were a bit too big for our Scrabble board, so next time I might make sure they’re smaller and prepare a full batch of the 100 Scrabble letters to play a whole game with cookies (here’s a picture of all the letters you’d need). Or if you don’t want to worry about fitting them to a specific board, play “Bananagrams” style and split the tiles among players to see how many words they can make free-style. Whoever wins gets to eat a cookie! And of course these cookies don’t have to be Valentine’s Day themed at all (I know there are a lot of V-Day haters out there), but ’tis the season and I was feeling the love .


How does our Scrabble Cheat work?

At it's simplest, we keep a giant database of all the possible Scrabble words. When you enter the letters from your tiles, we are able to quickly figure out exactly what words can be made. For competition within the United States and Canada for NASPA play the TWL Scrabble dictionary is used, outside of the USA, tournaments use the SOWPODS dictionary, within the US the TWL dictionary is used.

We sort the list of words by the length of the words, and you can click on each of them individually to get the definition, the word score in Scrabble or Words with Friends, anagrams, the list of any words you can make by adding an extra letter, or words that might start or end with that word you've entered. This will give you excellent options to win every game!

Scrabble in other languages

Our Word Solver works in several languages. The standard unscramble tool uses a dictionary similar to the official Scrabble dictionary - We also use a dictionary in our Solveur Scrabble (French Scrabble® Crossword game solver), a shorter German dictionary for our Wortsuche (German Solver), A large Italian word dictionary for our Italian Scrabble Helper, a gargantuan Spanish Dictionary for the Buscador Palabra, and a smaller dictionary for our Romanian Scrabble Solver. The word finder program will scan the dictionary and form words which match the tiles you've entered.

How did Scrabble Word Finder start?

Back in 2010, there was a giant surge in interest in the gmae of Scrabble on sites like Facebook, and eventually with massively popular games like Words with Friends created by Zynga.

While we were playing Scrabble games with our friends, we had the natural urge to cheat and found that the word unscrambler sites out on the internet were low quality, slow and had terrible results - an idea was born! One of the first things we added was our words with friends cheat, and as that became popular we added word definitions, synonyms, anagrams, and other word generator language options to help visitors from other countries.

The cheat tool allows you to find words by entering your letters, including using question marks as wildcards to use in place of blank tiles in the game. The advanced options let you enter prefixes to pick words that start with certain letters, and suffixes for words that end with different letters. When you search, the word finder tool will find new words for the letters you have entered and from there you get the option to see what the word means, whether it will work in different word games, and lots of other options to help you win more games!

The average Scrabble player needs a little help now and then, but placing the tiles are on you - pick the best bonus spot (preferably a triple word score!) on the board and maximise your point value, while blocking your opponents.

If you're more into word jumbles, use the anagram solver and you're going to get anything that can be made from that existing word.

The Walking Dead Zombie Cookies

An Original Recipe by Not Quite Nigella

Makes about 18 cookies (15 large, 3 small "kids", although this depends on the size of cutter you use)

  • 170g/6ozs butter, softened
  • 280g/10 ozs white caster superfine sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 360g/12ozs all-purpose flour
  • green and black food gel colour

You will also need a gingerbread man cutter

  • White fondant and colouring gels
  • Red, brown, yellow, green, blue and pink icing colour pens

Step 1: In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and almond and lemon extracts. Stir in the flour and then the colours. Roll into two large balls, flatten and wrap each in cling wrap and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight but take it out ahead of time to let it become more rollable).

Step 2:Preheat oven to 200C/400 F. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/3 inch thick, I prefer these a bit thicker so that they are sturdy. Dipping your cutter in the flour, cut out man shapes. Place cookies 1 inch apart on parchment paper. Because they are zombies you can cut off heads and place them in the crook of the arms so that they look like they're carrying their own heads.

Gently moving the arms and head to become more zombie-like

You should also raise the arms gently because apparently zombies don't stroll like the rest of us and hold their arms up. Tilt some heads to the side too. Refrigerate the cut out dough for 15 minutes-this will help them keep their shape.

Step 3: Bake for 10-12 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

The torso guy. I saw that in the Walking Dead and was suitably grossed out. So of course I had to make it

Step 4: This is what us bakers and cookie lovers live for-the decorating! I made sure to set up all of the bits and pieces that I needed. These include a non stick board to roll on, a non stick rolling pin, the fondant and gels, gloves, a glass of water, a trash bin and anything that will help you do patterns on the "clothes" which includes toothpicks, pointy ended chopsticks or a ravioli rotary cutter. Now's the time to get into a seriously trashy 80's movie because decorating this many cookies takes at least 1.5-2 hours.

Step 5: I always do anything with white first as the coloured gels do tend to mark white fondant much in the same way that wearing a white dress will attract red wine or shark blood (don't ask). I cut out the clothes by rolling out the fondant colours and then cut out the shape with the same cookie cutter. Don't forget that raggedy edges are good and ugly and messy and dirty are good in the zombie world (or so I hear). Adhere the clothes to the cookies using a little water from the glass. Bite a bit off the arm and then draw some blood on the cut.

Step 6: The most fun was doing the faces. Think bulging eyes and red eye veins. To do the red eye veins, squeeze out some red gel and using a toothpick, feather little veins on each eye. Do things like crooked teeth, blood (you'll use loads of the red icing pen) and eyes dropping out of sockets.

To store the cookies, once completely dry, place in an airtight container between layers of parchment and get some desiccant packets that you get with items like dried nori, biscuits etc and allow the desiccant to soak up any moisture. You can even use cubes of bread to do so too.

Milk & Cookies for Santa – DIY Scrabble Coasters

Post by Kelsey Nixon of Kelsey’s Essentials One of the simple yet classic Christmas traditions that our family always looks forward to is leaving out milk and cookies for Santa (don’t forget the carrots for Rudoph!). If you’ve got one more Christmas craft left in you before the big event, these simple DIY scrabble coasters could be a blast to make with letter loving kids on Christmas Eve. It’s a fun exercise to come up with 4-5 letter words that make up holiday sayings – and a particularly fun challenge when you only have a certain number of individual letters. Even if the kids in your house are a little to you to put together words, this can still be a fun way to work with letters. My two and a half year old Ollie loved fishing out certain letters for me. This craft is inexpensive, quick, and most importantly these can be a memento that your family pulls out year after year to perfectly prop up Santa’s milk alongside his cookies. (This is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe) See the simple directions for the coasters below.

Materials for DIY Scrabble Coasters:

  • Scrabble Tiles (found here)*
  • Craft glue
  • Cork coasters or cork board (found at a local craft store)
  • Scissors

DIY Scrabble Coasters Instructions

  1. Choose holiday phrases or words that can easily be made up with the Scrabble letters. We found that there were a lot more 5 letter holiday words than 4 letter words, so our coasters aren’t a perfect square, but the shape didn’t bother us and I’m sure Santa won’t mind.
  2. Organize your letters before using the craft glue to glue each letter onto the cork board or coaster aligning the first letter to the upper corner.
  3. Allow each coaster to dry completely before using sharp scissors or an x-acto knife to carefully trim the edges.
  4. Hint Hint: I found that one set of 100 scrabble letters made about 4 coasters.

Hopefully these cheery coasters will get your kids even more excited for Santa’s big arrival and make sure that Jolly Old St. Nick is well taken care of when he stops at your house.

How to Make LOVE Scrabble Pieces

Here’s a Valentine’s Day project that is not only pretty, but it’s quick and easy. And bonus, it uses up some of that scrap wood you have laying around too! Now that’s a project that I like: quick, easy, and pretty.

How to make LOVE Scrabble Pieces

I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually do a lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day. I’ve made a pretty paper wreath, a cute little centerpiece, and a really lovely banner, and that’s about it.

But these letters are kinda cute, don’t you think? C’mon, I’ll show you how I made my large LOVE letter scrabble tiles.

How to make LOVE scrabble pieces

Supplies I used (this list contains affiliate links):

  1. scrap wood (I had some 1 x6’s) (I used my miter saw)
  2. letter stencils (I made mine with my Silhouette Cameo & ConTact® paper

First, I cut my wood. My scraps were 1 x 6’s (which actually mean that they are 5-1/2″ wide – not 6″wide), so I had to cut them to (4) 5-1/2″ lengths to give me four square pieces.

The edges were rough, so I went over them with my orbital sander. You could also just use a sanding block or sponge.

Next, I created the stencil design in Silhouette Studio®. Don’t worry if you don’t have one of these awesome electronic cutting machines. It’s not hard to make stencils of these four letters using your printer and a word processing program. Just print out the letters in the size you want, then cut out the letters with scissors. Use the paper stencil as a pattern to trace the shape onto the Con-Tact paper. Then cut the letters out of the Con-Tact paper.

Once the stencils are made, it’s time to apply them to the blocks (tiles).

Make sure the stencil is well-adhered around the edges of the letter to prevent the paint from seeping underneath.

I chose not to stain the wood.

Maybe I’ll stain them next year for a different look )

So what do you think? Will you make a set of LOVE Letter scrabble pieces? Let me know if you do, I’d love to see them! I’d also love to hear of any projects that’s you’ve made with wood scraps. Please let me know in the comment section below!

I have been a health insurance broker for over a decade and every day I read more and more “horror” stories that are posted on the Internet regarding health insurance companies not paying claims, refusing to cover specific illnesses and physicians not getting reimbursed for medical services. Unfortunately, insurance companies are driven by profits, not people (albeit they need people to make profits). If the insurance company can find a legal reason not to pay a claim, chances are they will find it, and you the consumer will suffer. However, what most people fail to realize is that there are very few “loopholes” in an insurance policy that give the insurance company an unfair advantage over the consumer. In fact, insurance companies go to great lengths to detail the limitations of their coverage by giving the policy holders 10-days (a 10-day free look period) to review their policy. Unfortunately, most people put their insurance cards in their wallet and place their policy in a drawer or filing cabinet during their 10-day free look and it usually isn’t until they receive a “denial” letter from the insurance company that they take their policy out to really read through it. The majority of people, who buy their own health insurance, rely heavily on the insurance agent selling the policy to explain the plan’s coverage and benefits. Don’t you think it would be better to put that extra $200 ($2,400 per year) in your bank account, just in case you may have to pay your $2,500 deductible or buy a $12 Amoxicillin prescription? Isn’t it wiser to keep your hard-earned money rather than pay higher premiums to an insurance company?
