Melted Snowman Cookies

Posted in : Dessert on by : fivethumbsup Tags: , , , , ,

These melted snowman cookies are the cutest! I found these adorable cookies while browsing Pinterest one day. I knew that I needed to pin them and make them for some occasion this Christmas season.  A few days later I found myself in charge of the snack for our church’s Christmas for Kids. I knew right away I was going give these melted snowman cookies a try.  The cookie and frosting recipe are my own, I just used the snowman idea from Pinterest.

I had a blast making these cute cookies. It was a little time-consuming, but well worth it. One thing I loved about them is that I didn’t need to dye any frosting, all I needed was white. The simpler the better when it comes to frosting colors for me.

The kids at Christmas for kids loved them. You know a cookie is good when only 1 out of 25 cookies doesn’t get completely eaten. That one cookie that didn’t get finished  was my picky 3-year-old who doesn’t like frosting. The kids thought they were adorable and had fun deciding what they were going to eat first the head or the body.

Super cute, easy, fun snack idea for the Christmas season for kids and adults too. I highly suggest you give it a try.

Ingredients:

Cookies:

  • 1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

  1.  In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar.
  2. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat together and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Stir together.
  4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined and dough is formed.
  5. Roll into a ball and refrigerate over night.
  6. Roll out onto a flour surface and use a glass or a circle cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.
  7. Bake at 400 for 6-8 minutes.
  8. Cool on a wire rack.

Frosting:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tsp. milk
  • 4   tsp. light corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. clear vanilla
  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Add powdered sugar and milk together in a blow and mix until combined.
  2. Add the corn syrup, vanilla, and salt. Mix until combined. If too thick add more milk. If too runny add more powder sugar.

Decorating:

  • Mini M&M’s
  • Marshmallows
  • Black decorating icing.
  • Orange decorating icing

Directions:

  1. Using the decorating icing draw faces on the marshmallows. Set aside.
  2. Frost cookies. I piped the frosting on to create the melted look.
  3. Place a decorated marshmallow in the frosting.
  4. Place M&M’s in the frosting.
  5. Draw arms.
  6. I did not draw scarves, but you could if you wanted.

I hope you enjoy these  cute cookies as much as we did.
