How to Make Snowman Sugar Cookies
Not only are they the cutest thing ever, but these Snowman-inspired cookies are also ridiculously easy to make. You can either use your favorite sugar cookie recipe or your preferred brand of refrigerated cookie dough.
If you want to skip the baking altogether, you can buy ready to eat sugar cookies and have a grand time decorating!
- Sugar cookie recipe or refrigerated cookie dough
- White royal icing mix, prepared according to package directions
- Black decorating frosting
- Orange fondant
Using a rolling pin, roll the refrigerated dough (or your cookie dough from scratch) to about 1/4-inch thick. With a cookie cutter, cut into circles.
Arrange dough in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in the oven according to recipe or package directions. Allow baked cookies to cool completely before decorating.
Prepare white royal icing according to package directions, adding water to reach desired consistency. Gently pour on top of each cookie. Arrange iced cookies in single layer on a baking sheet and let stand for a few minutes for the icing to set.
Using black decorating frosting, draw two dots on the icing for the “eyes.”
Shape a small pinch of orange fondant into triangular/carrot shapes to resemble snowman’s nose.
Place the shaped orange fondant in the center of each cookie under the eyes to resemble the nose.
Using the black decorating frosting, draw a smile under the nose to complete snowman’s face.
