Melting Snowmen

These little snow men are so cute. I first saw them at that Crazy Domestic Megan when she linked to our Friday's Favorites. Then I found the tutorial at Stacy's Sweet Shop but I think the original melting snow man is Chic Cookies. They made it look so easy and I'm just borrowing their great ideas!
Christmas just wouldn't be the same without Christmas Cookies. I use this family recipe~ Gekie's Butter Cookies and roll out my cookie dough. It was a lot more fun when I had helpers. The helpers don't arrive until Christmas day... So this year I decided to do something different.







First I rolled the dough in to marshmallow sized balls and pressed them out onto a cookie sheet.

I used a white icing to loosely cover the cookies. The marshmallows are heated for a few seconds to make them soft and wonky.

I had fun adding the snowman parts

and the expressions

of a warm Alabama Christmas day

it doesn't look good if you are a Snowman! It's looking really good if you have a sweet tooth.
Merry Christmas y'all~
