The cook will have a ball decorating plain packaged cookies to create these clever confections that look like baseballs and team caps.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + standing
MAKES: 14 servings


  • 2 cups vanilla or white chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 16 Oreo cookies
  • 1 tube red decorating frosting
  • 1 package (12 ounces) chocolate and marshmallow cookies
  • 12 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 12 red M&M's


  1. In a microwave or heavy saucepan, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip sandwich cookies into mixture and allow excess to drip off; place on waxed paper to harden.
  2. Meanwhile, spread red frosting over half of the bottom of each marshmallow cookie; press off-center onto a chocolate wafer, creating a cap. (See the how-to-photo above.)
  3. Pipe a line of frosting where the cookies meet. Pipe stitching lines down sides of marshmallow cookies. Attach an M&M on top with a dab of frosting.
  4. On dipped sandwich cookies, pipe stick marks to create baseballs. Yield: 12 caps and 16 baseballs, 14 servings, 2 per serving.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Nabisco Pinwheels.
