Jolly Snowman Cookies
Cut and paste! Shoestring licorice turns into a magical snowman’s top hat on these sugar cookies. Gather the littlest helpers when it's time to decorate the snowmen. Even toddlers can get into the act.
Serves: makes 3 dozen cookies
Prep Time: 60 minutes
Cook Time: 9 minutes


1 pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted
1 egg
1 tub Betty Crocker® Whipped vanilla ready-to-spread frosting
Black shoestring licorice
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup red cinnamon candies

Heat the oven to 375ºF. Stir together the cookie mix, melted margarine and egg in medium bowl until the ingredients form a soft dough.

Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls on an ungreased baking sheet, leaving 3 inches between them. Use more than one cookie sheet.  Flatten the cookies so that they are about 1/4 inch thick and 2 inches across.

Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown. Cool for 1 minute and then remove from then cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Frost and decorate one cookie at a time. Spread frosting on 1 cookie. Add licorice across the top third of the cookie for a hat, 3 raisins for eyes and nose and 5 candies for mouth. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
