  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tub (16 oz) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Vanilla Frosting
  • 18 large marshmallows
  • 5 tubes icing writers (red, blue, yellow, black, green)


  • 1
    In a large bowl, knead together the sugar cookie dough and flour. Break into 18 pieces, making each with about 1-1/2 tablespoons of dough. Roll into balls and place on two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and cool completely before frosting.
  • 2
    Frost cookies with vanilla frosting. Wet knife slightly to create a nice, smooth spread on each cookie.
  • 3
    Gently press each large marshmallow, elongating the bottom half slightly to appear melted. Press marshmallows into frosting.
  • 4
    Squeeze about a 1/2 teaspoon of yellow and 1/4 teaspoon of red icing frosting into a plastic ziptop sandwich bag. Squish together until about 3/4 tablespoon of orange frosting has been mixed together. Snip a tiny corner from the bag.
  • 5
    Pipe black frosting onto each marshmallow for eyes and a smile. Use the orange icing to pipe a tiny carrot nose onto the marshmallows.
  • 6
    Pipe a red, blue, green or yellow scarf around the neck and melted belly of your snowman cookie. Allow frosting to set before serving.

More About This Recipe

  • They're easy and as clever as can be. These whimsical little cookies will make your guests giddy.

    I always want to get clever at Christmas but run out of time. Last year, two days before the holiday, I remembered that I hadn't bought half the presents for one of my kids. Thank goodness for overnight shipping!

    The thing is, being clever takes time. Some of the cutest Christmas cookies are recipes I'd never actually make. They're all tinted and swirls and darned near impossible. And while I love being in the kitchen, what I really don't want to do in the hustle and bustle of the season is stand curling together delicate little treats that no one has belly space to enjoy.

    Which is why I LOVE THESE COOKIES! They are too cute, too easy to make, and turned me into the cleverest mom on the block. You may have seen these before, but this version is even easier.

    You should have SEEN my kids eyes when they came home and discovered these next to piping glasses of milk on the afterschool snack table. #epicmommymoment

    Grab a few really, really, really easy ingredients and whip up a quick batch of these adorable melted snowman cookies. You – and your kids – are gonna love 'em!

    This one's easy, guys! Just start with a tube of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough.

    Once your cookies are baked, cool them, then frost with Betty Crocker vanilla frosting.

    Press a large marshmallow into each frosted cookie.

    Now pipe black icing into eyes and a coal mouth. So cute!

    Add a little carrot nose, then pipe colorful scarves onto each cookie.

    In a twinkle, you've got little melted snow cookies.

    Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if ya wanna, to lend a little snowy flair to your treats! Serve with hot cocoa, nibble and sip.
