In need of a pick me up after a bracket upset? You can count on these cookies to lighten any mood and even get you excited for the next game. I was tired of typical basketball decorated desserts, so I thought it would be a good idea to make referees out of Nutter Butter sandwich cookies instead! I think putting them on the dessert table will add a creative (and adorable) spin to just your usual cookies. Who knows, maybe these cookies will give luck to whatever team you are rooting for! It's so easy that you can make these for any sports occasion!
