Melting Snowman Cookies

 

Making Melting Snowman Cookies is one of our favorite holiday traditions to do with the kids.  The cookies don’t have to be perfect and they are super fun to make.  We have a really good sugar cookie recipe we use to make this delicious treats too.  If you wanted to skip the step of making these cookies homemade, you can always purchase a premade sugar cookie dough from the refrigerated section of the grocery store too.  The shapes of the cookies won’t hold up to be perfectly round like our recipe but it’s an easy option for sure.

Tips:

One thing I always do when baking cookies, is use either parchment paper or a silicone mat for baking.  The silicon mat is perfect because the cookie bottoms always come out perfectly golden brown!

3 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  3.  Wrap the dough in saran wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
