Snowman Cookies

Winter time brings so many great memories to mind...playing in the snow with my brother and snowball fights followed by a hot cup of cocoa. These little things stick out in my mind now that I'm an adult. I want to create new special memories...new memories that my daughter will cherish as she grows up. She loves to bake (or help with baking) so I promised myself I would spend one day a week doing this special activity with just her. She also has a creative artsy streak (ummm I wonder where that comes from?!) so I thought making these winter snowman cookies would be perfect! Plus I could not resist the lovely colors of the "disco dust" in the little pots used on the scarves of the snowmen! I just love color! If you want to create your own special memories making these cute winter themed cookies than click here....and as usual, have a crafty day!

ooh these cookies are the prettiest I have seen all winter! They are nearly too lovely to eat (but I could force myself...)
I'm sure your daughter loved making these!
Thanks for the link - I may try some myself.

Awe, those are super cute. I made snowman cookies this year too! They are on my blog if you'd like to see them. Not as perfect as those, but still, cute, I think!

I love to bake with my kids. It is definitely one of those memories you take with you forever!

Tami I had a chance to go to your blog and check out the cookies....definately cute! I really liked the pumpkins the best for some reason! I agree baking with the daughter is a good way to form a childhood memory!

I don't think I will want to eat them cause there're so colorful and pretty.

@Glenys....I know what you mean! However I figure you HAVE to eat em eventually because moldy cookies don't really look that nice in a dish!...lol! Thanks for stopping by!
