Melted Snowman Cookies

Hello, my name is Lindsey. I am a Pinterest addict (and totally not ashamed.)

Here's one of those Oh!-That-is-so-cute!-I'm-going-to-repin-and-try-that-sometime.

Reese's Kindergarten Christmas party, with the request, Please bring one dozen cookies, was the perfect reason to try these!

Melted Snowman Cookies

Start with your favorite cookie dough recipe....

Drop dough by tablespoons onto a cookie sheet.

Flatten with hands- nothing perfect about these cookies. Keep the form irregular!
(A tip from a friend: use powdered sugar instead of flour when flattening your sugar cookies. It keeps the cookies from drying out and keeps your fingers from sticking!)

Bake according to the directions.
Make a sugar cookie glaze. 

Here's mine.....
Whisk 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar and 6 Tablespoons of milk. When all the lumps were gone, add 7 Tablespoons of light corn syrup and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Glaze cookies, making sure the glaze falls over the sides.

For the snowman heads:
Heat large marshmallows on a greased microwave-safe plate for 20 seconds. Watch closely. Don't let the marshmallows double in size.
With greased fingers, remove the marshmallows and place on the cookie.

Use small tubs of colored gel icing to decorate. 
This is the fun part!
Get creative....
