  • 16.5 ounces refrigerated cookie dough
  • 2 cups prepared white royal icing
  • black decorating gel
  • 2 ounces orange fondant


  • Using a rolling pin, roll out dough thinly to about 1/4 inch thick and cut into circles with a cookie cutter.
  • Arrange dough in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake according to recipe or package directions. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before decorating.
  • Gently pour white royal icing on top of each cookie, spreading as needed to cover. 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.
