Tips  

Expert Tips

This recipe was one of fifteen winners in the 2007 Mix It Up with Betty! Cookie Mix Recipe Contest. More than $10,000 was awarded!

If you only have one 12-cup mini muffin pan, shape all of the dough into balls. Fill the pan and cover the remaining balls to keep them from drying out. After baking, cool the muffin pan completely before refilling it with dough.

Find lemon curd next to the jams and jellies at the supermarket. You might like to try lime or raspberry curd.

Betty Crocker® whipped cream cheese frosting or whipped cream frosting can be used for the fluffy white.
