  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Reshape into log. If too soft to cut into slices, refrigerate up to 30 minutes.
  2. Cut dough into 32 (1/4-inch) slices. With floured fingers, shape each dough slice to form football. On ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until set and golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  4. Spread frosting over cookies. With white decorating gel, draw laces on each football.

Recipe Tips

  • Keep the slices round, frost with white frosting and use black decorating gel to make soccer ball cookies.
