Expert Tips

Baseball Cookies: Use red decorating gel to make “stitches.”
Soccer Ball Cookies: Use chocolate decorating icing to make soccer ball design.
Basketball Cookies: Tint glaze orange with food color, and use chocolate decorating icing to make “seams.”

Use Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy ready-to-spread frosting instead of making the glaze.

Older kids can help with every step of this recipe, but kids of all ages will want to help you decorate the cookies.
