I am buried deep in the January blues! It just feels like such a gloomy month with so little going on compared to the rush of the holidays and like it needs some bright spots in it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got a long to do list for cleaning and organizing and what not, but it’s still so gloomy. So I booked a trip for myself to San Diego! But since that’s not until next week, for now, I spent some time with my littlest baking all day and making fun things. He had a blast making these Snowman Cookies with me. He even decorated his own, a “ninja” version!
So cute, so simple! Little hands can make these easily! And they can work all winter long.
And you can get creative with colors and decorating if you want!
Snowman Cookies Recipe:
You can use any sugar cookies to make these! Got a recipe you love? Use that. Or grab some at the store. Here is my favorite recipe if you need one:
- 1/2 C butter
- 1 C sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 C milk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 2 C flour
Mix all of these ingredients, then chill the dough for at least one hour.
Roll out dough about 1/2 inch thick. Use a cup or circle cookie cutter to cut circles.
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until edges are just barely starting to look brown.
Decorating the Cookies:
- Frosting (grab some store bought or use a nice buttercream)
- Twizzlers Pull n’ Peel
- Candy eyes (craft store or baking section of most grocery stores)
- Mini chocolate chips
Frost your cookies.
Cut a piece of the Twizzlers Pull n’ Peel so that it will reach about half way around your cookie. Place it and then add two M&Ms for the ear muffs.
Add eyes and an orange M&M nose.
Place mini chocolate chips upside down (so that the flat bottom is showing) to make a mouth.
And you’re done! It’s that easy!
Make it a Snowman Party!
