Snowman cookies

Snowman cookies are a really cute and super Christmas idea to amaze your guests during the holidays. These are very simple shortbread biscuits decorated however with icing, marshmallows and sugars to simulate a snowman that is starting to melt, a very nice idea that the children of the house will love. In case you have a slightly sluggish half day and you are looking for a way to distract your little ones, this could be a nice and greedy idea to entertain them;)

Method

How to make snowman cookies

First prepare the shortcrust pastry (if you use my recipe, half a dose should suffice), cover with cling film and leave to rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Take back the dough and roll it out on a lightly floured work surface in a sheet of about 1 centimeter.
With a 7 cm pastry cutter, make the biscuits, place them a little apart on the baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for about 20 minutes in a pre-heated ventilated oven at 180 ° C.

Once well cooked and golden, take the biscuits out of the oven and let them cool.
Meanwhile, prepare the royal icing by mixing egg white, icing sugar and a few drops of lemon juice.

At this point you can start decorating your cookies.
Pour some icing on each biscuit (it must not be too homogeneous, because it serves to simulate the melted snow).
Add a marshmellow (press a little to attach it well with the biscuit icing) which will be the head of the snowman, then add the other elements of the puppet: chocolate drops for the eyes, orange sugars for the nose, smarties for the buttons , pieces of licorice for arms and hands.
Let it harden at room temperature for about 1 hour.

The snowman cookies are ready.
