Dress up refrigerated sugar cookie dough to make these super-cute snowmen. This easy recipe requires almost no prep, and allows you to be creative and have fun in the kitchen. Let your kids give them personality by decorating with holiday candies. Using snowflake sprinkles, M&M's mini buttons, and Hershey's Kisses, your holiday cookies are sure to come to life in a fun, exciting way that the kids are going to love. Note: In the photograph shown, we covered the cookies in white frosting and piped red frosting for the scarves. We also added mini-chocolate chips to make the snowmen smile.

2/3 cup of all-purpose flour
16 1/2-oz. roll of refrigerated sugar-cookie dough
Snowflake sprinkles

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F. Knead 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour into a 16 1/2-oz. roll of refrigerated sugar-cookie dough.

Tear off a piece of dough and roll it in your palms to form a 3/4 -inch ball. Roll a slightly larger piece into a 1-inch ball, and a still slightly larger piece into a 1 1/4-inch ball. Repeat with remaining dough. Place 1 of each size ball close together on parchment lined baking sheets; flatten balls slightly.

Bake cookies for 12 minutes. Cool on rack. Pipe frosting for scarves and to attach M&M's Minis buttons, mini-chocolate chip eyes, snowflake sprinkles and Hershey's Kisses for hats. Makes 8.
