Today I’m sharing a cookie that my buddy Juan made for a Christmas cookie exchange. Isn’t it cute?
I am not a fan of marshmallows, but they are what help to make this cookie so adorable. Since I don’t really care for the taste of marshmallows, I personally would not make a from-scratch sugar cookie. This cookie is all about having fun making it with your kids or grandkids, and I recommend just buying some Pillsbury or Betty Crocker cookie dough. So, no recipe today—just some inspiration and basic guidelines.
Make or buy the sugar cookie of your choice. Frost it with a basic vanilla icing but don’t totally cover the cookie. Thin the frosting with enough milk so that it flows easily. You want to make it look like the “snow” has melted into puddles. Place a marshmallow “head” on the frosting—it can be in the center or off center as you like.
Then, using black and/or brown icing, pipe a face on the marshmallow, two stick arms, and some buttons. No feet required!
