Last year, Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsey from Love and Olive Oil launched the first ever Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! I baked Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookies that are, in my mind, the perfect cookie for Fall – just like a caramel-covered apple. Yum!
This year, my sister joined me in the effort and we made Florida Snowmen Cookies!
Get it? They’re melted! Tee-hee!
Want to make them yourself? Well, today is your lucky day because here’s the tutorial!
Step 1: Bake round cookies using your favorite roll-out cookie recipe. We used this one for Sugar Cookies from Cookinglight.com. Allow the cookies to cool completely before decorating.
Note: Like the spatula? It says “be a good cookie.” So cute! Oxo sent these to all the cookie swap participants! Love it!
Step 2: Using white royal icing, pipe a squiggly border on the cookies and quickly fill it with more icing. Give the cookies a little shake or tap on the table to get it to blend together. If you need help with this step, here’s a great tutorial by the Cookie Goddess (that’s what I call her) Sugarbell.
Step 3: Before the icing sets or dries, quickly add half of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup (the snowman’s hat) and 2 mini chocolate chips (his eyes). Allow the white icing to dry completely.
Step 4: Tint a little of your royal icing orange and pipe carrot noses on the cookies. Allow them to dry, and you’re done!
