To make a batch of these cookies you will need a few simple ingredients. For the cookies, you will need butter, flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, vanilla and almond extract, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, and one egg.
For the frosting, you will need butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. You will also need a package of Wilton snowman cookie ball decorations.
To make your cookies combine the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and almond extract, and egg in a mixing bowl.
Blend these ingredients together with an electric mixer. Add your flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar with a spatula.
Roll the dough into a ball in the bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for two hours.
After two hours have passed, put your granulated sugar in another bowl. Roll the cookie dough into 1 ½ inch balls, and roll the balls in the granulated sugar before putting them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake your cookies at 350 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes, and cool on a rack.
To make your icing combine the melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and three tablespoons of milk in a small mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to mix them together. If the icing is too thick add additional milk one tablespoon at a time.
If the icing is too thin add a tablespoon of powdered sugar one tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency. The frosting should spread over the cookie and drip off of the sides a little.
Allow the icing to harden for a minute, and then add your black eyes and carrot nose to the top of the cookie.
Transfer your cookies to a serving platter and enjoy! These melted snowman cookies are perfect for a Christmas party, a cookie exchange, or a Frozen birthday party or movie screening!
They’re so adorably sweet that they will be the talk of any party, especially with the tiny carrots noses–just like Olaf’s nose he can’t seem to keep track of! Serve them with a warm mug of cocoa for a special treat!
Melted Snowman Cookies FAQs
How long do melted snowman cookies last?
Store your leftover cookies, if you are lucky enough to have any, in an airtight container at room temperature. They will be good for five to seven days.
If you want them to last longer, freeze the undecorated sugar cookies for up to three months in a freezer safe container or Ziploc bag. Just thaw the cookies before decorating them with frosting and candy decorations.
Can I use cookie mix to make melting snowman cookies?
Yes, you can use pre-made cookie mix to make your melted snowman cookies. Follow the instructions on the back of the package and when it’s time to bake the cookies, roll them in granulated sugar before baking.
You can even get the premade cookie dough to simplify the process even more. Use the same instructions and then decorate your cookies with Wilton snowman cookie ball decorations and follow the icing instructions to get melt-in-your-mouth perfection!
