Snowman Sugar Cookies

Cute sugar cookies....part deux!

These cuties were inspired by the snowman cookies I saw on Spring Lake Cakes. I think their cookies are actually much cuter, with rosy cheeks (I forgot to add that) and wonderful detailing on the hat. I was still very pleased with how these turned out though. I'm even thinking of making a mini version for my daughter's preschool Christmas pageant later this week if time allows.

I really love how the little snowflake looks on the hat. I got this package of edible snowflakes at my local Rite Aid and have used them on all sorts of winter related treats....cookies, cupcakes and cakeballs. They don't really taste like much and the texture is a little odd. They are made out of rice starch and feel very dry. However, for decorating and for $1.99 I couldn't pass these up!
