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.

Ingredients

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

How to Make It

  1. 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.

Repeat with remaining dough. Place 1 of each size ball close together on parchment lined baking sheets; flatten balls slightly.
