Baking Cookies for Santa

I have been on a hunt to find the perfect cookie recipe for Christmas. With Christmas Eve dinner just one day away I found this cute recipe for a Snowman cookie and a fantastic idea for a place card all courtesy of Sweet Paul blog. Happy Holidays!!

Snowman Cookies: Recipe courtesy of Sweet Paul
Makes 12 snowmen 1 batch sugar cookie dough
1 small batch of peppermint cookie dough (see Sweet Paul Magazine)
Confectioners’ sugar
Shredded coconut
1/4 cup melted chocolate
1 small piece of orange fondant
1 piece of red and white string
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cut out 3 different circles of the sugar cookie dough (small, medium and large).
Place them on top of each other to create a snowman shape.
Press them gently together and transfer to a parchment-paper-covered baking tray.
Cut out small hats using the peppermint cookie dough and place on the same tray.
Bake for about 8 to 12 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.
Mix confectioners’ sugar and water until smooth.
Cover the snowman with frosting and dip into coconut.
Add extra frosting to his head and place the hat.
Use melted chocolate in a piping bag to make buttons and a band for his hat.
Take a small piece of fondant to create a thick carrot. Fasten with a small amount of frosting.
Tie a string around the next as a scarf.
