Must-Make 3D Snowmen Cookies

December 22, 2014

Hungry Happenings is a baking blog known for making fun and creative treats like these awesome 3D snowmen sugar cookies.  Two homemade snowmen sugar cookies are sandwiched together using royal icing.  A circle is cut out of the bottom to eventually become the viewing window, similar to a snow globe.  The best part about these cookies is that they do not require the handling of any melted sugar.  Clear mint candies are pulverized in a food processor and then spooned into the circle.  When the cookies bake, the sugar melts to create the clear pane.  If you are looking for a holiday treat that will truly delight eaters, these 3D cookies are perfect for the job.
