Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Fun idea! Pick up a lemon-shaped cookie cutter from a cake decorator supply store or craft store. Make lemon cookies using the rolled cookie directions. Your cookies will shape up to their great taste.
  • tip 2
    Rolled Cookies: Divide dough into 4 equal parts; roll each part 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured surface with cloth-covered rolling pin. Cut into desired shapes. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until light brown around edges.
