melted snowmen (and peppermint buttercream frosting)

And every year we try a new cookie recipe.

This year's new recipe was "Melted Snowmen"--
A regular Sugar Cookie with Peppermint Buttercream Frosting and marshmallow heads.

We made some content and others protesting,

and we made a few furious with their lot.

Peppermint Buttercream Frosting
1 stick of butter
2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream


  1. How fun! Sounds like a wonderful day! The snowmen are funny. Clever too. I can just hear them singing "Now come on! Lets Run & we'll have some fun...Now! ... before I melt awaaaaaaay!"

  2. ummmm......did you ship me some?

  3. Courtney dear,

    I have my family tomorrow and we were going to do some sort of new project. I think this is it!!! They'll love the snowmen and they'll love the doing of it. What a mess we'll create.

    Are you in for the drawing on my Tasha Tudor signed book and a copy of my book?

    All joys to you,
