Basketball Cookies

This year my friend and I decided to be the managers of the freshman boys basketball team. Today was their first game, and so we made them basketball cookies. They turned out pretty dang cute! :) I was impressed. The guys loved them and scarfed them down. They ended up loosing the game today against Freemont though. BUT the score ws 52:50. Only lost by 2 points! Overall it was a good game, and I had a lot of fun making these with my friend for them.

Sugar Cookies:
3/4c shortening
1c sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp lemon flavoring
