Updated Aug 28, 2017

Ingredients

  • Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch for drop cookies

    Store covered at room temperature with waxed paper between layers.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For even baking, make sure cookies are the same shape and size.
  • tip 2
    Use a decorating bag fitted with small plain piping tip for a more polished decorating look.
  • tip 3
    If using 20% more cookie mix (21 oz pouch), add 1 tablespoon water to cookie mix, butter and egg. Increase vanilla frosting to 3/4 cup and chocolate frosting to 1/2 cup. Use 28 peanut butter cups and 56 candy eye balls. Makes 28 cookies.
