Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Use red gel to mark the seams in baseballs. Substitute chocolate gel for soccer ball markings, or tint the frosting orange and use chocolate gel for basketballs.
  • Use only butter or stick margarine in this recipe, since spreads and tub margarines contain added water and will cause the cookies to spread.
