I know this is a little late for Christmas, but if the snow is falling (or you miss the snow) you and your kids will love making these cookies.

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

I used basic sugar cookies for this Instructable, but you can use any cookie base you want. It's the decorations that make everything


1 cup shortening or butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
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


Icing Pens
Assorted candies
Large marshmallows
Love the 3-D melting effect! I have not seen this melted version before. My son and I traditionally decorate the flat snowmen in demented Calvin and Hobbes style.
They taste as good as they look
Your son must have been terrified. They look very yummy.
He was upset at first until he had a taste.
Very Calvin and Hobbs.
I have seen these before too, they are just so cute! I love your snowman helper!!! These are delicious looking cookies!
Cheers, the helper was disovered by my two year old son, then devoured like the cookies.
