Supplies To Make Snowman Cookies

To make melted snowman cookies you will need:

How To Make Melting Snowman Cookies:

Ingredients:

Cookies:
1 cup butter room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder

Decorations:

2 bags of white candy melts

1 2.7 ounce sprinkles with orange ones

Wilton’s Black Decorating Icing

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

In the bowl of a standup, mixer cream together the butter and sugar for 3 minutes.

Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl and add in vanilla and egg. Mix until combined.

Add flour and baking powder to the bowl. Start mixing slowly then gradually speed up until the dough
comes together. The texture of your cookie dough should be a bit like Playdoh. If you need to add a bit of flour or water to get it to the right consistency.

Turn the cookie dough onto a floured surface, using a rolling pin roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick.
Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour, but make sure it lays completely flat in the fridge.

Use a round cookie cutter to cut the dough, work until all of the dough has been cut.

Transfer the cookies to a silicone lined cookie sheet.

Place the cookies in the oven for 6-8 minutes or until the centers are puffy and no longer glossy. Make sure you remove them before they get brown or they will not be that soft chewy texture we want.

Allow the cookies to cool completely.

Melt one bag of candy melts in a double boiler over medium-high heat. If you need to, add a bit of shortening to thin it out and make it smooth.

Dip the top of each cookie in the candy melt. Shake it gently to remove excess icing. Place each cookie on a piece of parchment to cure.

Once the cookies have cured completely, melt the second bag of candy melts. Pipe a small puddle of candy melt into the center of the cookie. Tap the cookie on the countertop until the puddle spreads and becomes level. Use a lid or cookie cutter smaller than the puddle, dip it into the center and lift slowly and gently.

Place an orange sprinkle on top of the icing for a nose and allow the icing to dry.

Using the black icing pipe dots for eyes, mouth, and arms. Allow cookies to dry before serving or storing.

Store in an airtight container.
