Make Your Own Adorable Snowman Cookies (The Kids Can Help!)

Snowmen cookies are one of my all-time favorite cookies to decorate with kids. You don’t have to be a super talented pastry chef or know exactly how royal icing works. For these cookies, all you need is a good layer of white royal icing and some cute candy to give it personality. Cool!

Use a small amount of white royal icing to glue the snowman’s nose on and arrange the snowflake sprinkles down the snowman’s middle like buttons.

Flood the ball and the brim of the hat with the light sky blue royal icing. Let it dry until the top layer of the icing crusts over (approximately 10-20 minutes).

Gently poke holes with the turkey lacer. This makes the brim and the ball of the hat look textured as if it were knitted. But be careful! If you let the icing dry too long this technique with not be effective.
