Frosty the Snowman

This week, it was in the mid-70's here. That's December in Alabama. Regardless of the warm weather, I made snowmen cookies.

I realize the title says Frosty the Snowman, but these are just regular snowmen.  Hey, I didn't exactly have any inspiration (70 degrees here.) But, if you're feeling the Holiday spirit, here's what you'll need to decorate these:

Black and yellow food coloring
Royal Icing
#2 and #4 tips
Red and Green sprinkles
Edible markers (base colors)

First, you'll need to use your #2 tip to outline the snowman. I'm not the best at making circles, so my snowman aren't perfectly round. When you live in a place that hardly ever gets snow, you understand that its hard to make round snowmen anyways.

Next, you'll flood your snowmen with white icing. While that's drying, use the #4 tip to draw the hat with black icing. It's such a small area, so I just piped that part. 

Now add three red sprinkles to the hat for berries, then add the green for the leaves.

Let your snowmen dry completely before adding anything else. When they are dry, pipe buttons with the #4 tip. I used black icing for that as well. Using the same tip, also pipe the scarf. 

While you are waiting for the scarf to dry, use your edible markers to draw the face on. I was going to use candy eyes for the snowman's eyes, but they were just a tad too big. So, I ended up drawing the entire face.

After the scarves were dry, I added a little detail with my markers. I drew stripes and polka dots. Ultimately, though, the plain scarves were my favorite.

After they were completely dry, I packed them up to send to my brother-in-law. I'm on a mission not to eat any of the cookies that I make. So far, I'm succeeding! 

So, there you have it - Snowmen Cookies. This just goes to show you, Christmas cookies don't have to be complicated. I'm starting off slow this year and progressing to harder cookies as the month goes on. As they say, practice makes perfect.

Happy Holidays!
