Ingredients:

Sugar Cookies:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butter

 

Topping:

Red, White, Green, and Blue Icing

Black Gel for decorating

Rainbow mini chips

Marshmallows

 

The sugar cookies

  1. Add sugar, butter and 1 egg into a mixing bowl, blend well
  2. Gradually add dry ingredients, flour, baking powder
  3. Refrigerate for 1 hour for easier handling
  4. Roll out on floured surface and cut out round shapes
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 7-10 minutes

The topping:

  1. After cookies are cooled, draw a snow puddle with white icing however you like
  2. While the icing is still wet, place a marshmallow to one side of the cookie
  3. Once the marshmallow is set, draw on the mouth and eyes and place an orange rainbow chip at the center for the nose. (I couldn’t find the chips so I used an orange sour patch kid.)
  4. Make the arms with the black icing
  5. Place the buttons with the rainbow chips and draw the scarf.
  6. Allow cookies to set before serving

Thoughts:

I think these cookies turned out really cute and I had a lot of fun making them. They were a little difficult because the icing I used was pretty runny so I had to draw the faces on the marshmallows separately and refrigerate them so they didn’t run. It was also pretty hard to make sure it didn’t run on the cookie itself. So, if you will be making these, make sure you have better icing or refrigerate the tubes before using and try to find the rainbow chips because they would probably be easier to place on the cookies and look a little neater. Making these cookies wasn’t very hard and they turned out pretty good so I think that these were a success. These would be great, fun thing to make with friends or family during the holiday season!
