Ingredients

  • Cookies
  • 2 ½ cups (355g) White Wings Plain Flour
  • ½ tsp Aunt Marys Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 200g (1 cup) CSR Sugar
  • 1 tsp (5ml) Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 (59g) Egg
  • Icing
  • ½ cup (60g) CSR Icing sugar, sifted
  • 3 tsp Milk
  • To decorate
  • 1 pkt White marshmallows
  • 1 pkt Snake lollies
  • 1 pkt small chocolate buttons
  • 1 Black edible food pen

Method

  • In large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk to blend and set aside.
  • In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until fluffy and pale, about 5 minutes. Beat in vanilla bean paste. Beat in egg.
  • Add flour mixture and mix on low speed until thoroughly combined.
  • Divide dough into two equal parts. Flatten each portion into a disk and wrap well in plastic wrap. Chill for about 45 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 170 degrees C conventional.
  • Remove one disk and unwrap. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough out to about 5cm thick. Cut out as many circles as you can using a 7cm round cutter. Place cut-outs on prepared baking trays, spacing them 3cm apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Transfer baking trays to a wire rack to cool.
  • TIP: Roll dough between two sheets of baking paper for a non-stick, mess free surface
  • To make the white icing, stir together icing sugar and 3 teaspoons of milk until smooth. Add up to 1 teaspoon more milk as needed to get a thick spreading consistency. Spread icing over large cooled cookies and press a marshmallow at the top of each cookie.
  • To start decorating your cookies, cut down the spine of the snake lolly to produce two long thinner pieces. Wrap each piece around the base of the marshmallows to form scarves.
  • Using an orange snake lolly, cut small triangles to form the Snowman’s nose. Gentle spoon a small amount of icing sugar mixture to the base of the nose and fix to the middle of the marshmallow
  • Place three mini round coloured chocolate buttons running down the centre of the cooking to form buttons
  • Using the black food pen, style your snowman’s face, and draw two arms.
