Melting Snowman Cookies

This recipe was found at Recipes to Warm the Heart. Thanks Wendy!

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Also, you will need frosting, you can make your own frosting or you can easily pick up some already made and also  giant marshmallows.

For the cookies: 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside. 
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets. 
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.  

Once the cookies are cool, load them up with the cookie icing and spread it around with the back of a spoon, let some dribble over the edge for a "puddle" look.  Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray and place your giant marshmallows on it.  Cook the marshmallows for 20 seconds.   Be sure to really watch them because you don't want the marshmallows to double in size. 
Spray your fingers and then pull off the plate and place on cookie.  The simply decorate the cookies how you want them to look!  So cute and kids love them!
