Now, I am not taking credit for coming up with this idea, as I have had them before, made by friends. But, I have not seen an Instructable on them, so I thought I would publish a how-to-do.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 cup shortening or butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
Step 2: Mixing It Up
Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add alternately to shortening mixture with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients.
Step 3: Just Chill.....
Step 4: ....And Bake
Or you can roll the dough into 1" balls, place on cookie sheets and flatten with the bottom of a water glass dipped in sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 350 degrees F for 7-10 minutes until very light golden brown around edges. Let cool on cookie sheets for about a minute, then remove to wire rack to cool completely
Step 5: Ice Ice Baby....
add a large marshmallow for a head. It does not have to look pretty as the messier the better.
Once the icing is hard, put the cookies in the microwave for a couple seconds to melt the marshmallow heads (just a little)
Step 6: Decorate to the Death....
I hope you enjoyed this Instructable and please post pics of your creations.
