  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter,soft
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar


  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  • 15 large marshmallows
  • black gel icing tube
  • red gel icing tube
  • orange gel icing tube
  • 45 mini M&Ms®


  1. For the cookies, place powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and egg in the bowl of a stand mixer. Blend until smooth.
  2. Add in flour, baking soda and cream of tartar and mix well. 
  3. Form the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  5. Remove dough from refrigerator and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 1/2-inch thick disk. Use a 3-inch round cookie cutter to cut the dough into circles. Place each circle on a baking sheet and bake for 7 - 9 minutes or until lightly browned. 
  6. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. 
  7. For the frosting, mix all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer until smooth. 
  8. To decorate, spread some frosting on each cookie. This doesn't have to look perfect because it's a melting snowman. 
  9. Soften marshmallows one at a time in the microwace for 6 seconds. Place on one side of each cookie. 
  10. Use gel colors to create the scarf, arms, eyes and nose. Place 3 mini M&Ms® down the front for buttons. Arrange on a temp-tations® platter to serve.
