Sometimes, things just work in the kitchen. The dough rises, the cookies bake perfectly, the frosting turns out just sweet enough. Where every stir, stroke, brush and knead works in unison to create a perfect end result. That happened to me last Friday when I created these low-fat melted snowmen cookies for work. Now, calling them perfect would be in extremely poor taste, and it would be wrong, they aren’t. But they are the cutest things I’ve ever made and I am SO THRILLED with how they came out.
I mean, don’t you want to just hug him? Give his adorable little marshmallow cheek a kiss? Don’t you just want to DIE looking at his adorable little button mouth? Now, as Gretchen pointed out, he seems really happy to be melting. But the frowing face just wasn’t as cute. So, I made a terrified face on one of them instead.
Poor little nuggle! Still, so cute I just can’t stand it. I wish I could say this was my idea entirely but sadly, I found these snowmen on Pinterest and just KNEW I had to make them. To make them lower in fat, I used my go-to low-fat sugar cookie recipe. Don’t be offended, though, when no one eats these. I brought them with me to the winery and no one touched them. I was a little said until I heard them say “those are just way too cute to eat!”
I’ll take that 🙂
