Holiday Snowmen Cookies
Ingredients

3. Spread cooled cookies with Royal Icing. Decorate as desired with chocolate pieces and/or candies.

Royal Icing

  • 1/3  cup  warm water
  • 1 16  ounce package  powdered sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/2  teaspoon  cream of tartar
Directions

1. In a mixing bowl, combine meringue powder and warm water. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined; beat on high speed for 7 to 10 minutes or until very stiff. When not using icing, keep it covered with plastic wrap. If necessary, thin icing with a little water.
