Ingredients

  • 1 18 ounce roll refrigerated sugar or chocolate chip cookie dough

  • 1 recipe Royal Icing

  • Miniature semisweet chocolate pieces, miniature candy-coated milk chocolate pieces, and/or gumdrops

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut cookie dough into 15 equal pieces. Divide each dough piece into three balls: one about 1 inch in diameter, one 3/4 inch in diameter, and one 1/2 inch in diameter. On an ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange each set of balls into a snowman shape, placing balls 1/4 inch apart and snowmen at least 3 inches apart.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 3 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely.

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

TO STORE:

Layer unfrosted cookies between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 1 day or freeze for up to 3 months. To serve, thaw cookies, if frozen. Frost cookies as directed in Step 3.
