Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Use Betty Crocker™ Creamy Deluxe™ chocolate frosting over cookies for a more decorated look! In small microwavable bowl, heat 1/4 cup frosting uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds until frosting is thin enough to drizzle. Using a fork, drizzle warmed frosting over cookies. Let stand about 2 hours or until set.
  • Tip 2
    For even baking, make sure cookies are the same shape and size.
  • Tip 3
    For easy cleanup, use cooking parchment paper on cookie sheets.
