snowman cookies

I wanted to share a fun & easy Cookie with you. These are one of my many favorites. They are made with Cream chesse & butter & are not very figure friendly....but very yummy! Add chocolate chip eyes & buttons & its even better!! The dough is sticky, but my little boy & I had a "ball" making these together.
1 8 oz softened philly cream cheese
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
3/4 Cup Butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1/2 tspn Vanilla
2 Cups Flour
1/2 tspn Baking Soda
~BAKE @ 325 for 19—21 MINS
* Suggested Decorations: Decorating gels, colored sprinkles, mini chips, & mini peanut butter cups

~ Mix Cream Cheese, Sugar, Butter & Vanilla on Med till well blended
~ Add Flour & Baking Soda, mix well
~ Shape dough into equal number of 1/2” & 1” balls. Using one size each, place balls slightly overlapping on cookie sheet.
Flatten to 1/4” thickness w/ bottom of a glass dipped in additional flour.
Cool on wire racks. Sprinkle each w. sifted powdered sugar.
Decorate & Cut peanut Butter cups in halves & place 1 on each for hats.

These are our finished cookies. This is about all my 3 year old had patience to finish! Not all got hats, because we ate quite a few too Hope you give it a try & add as much as you want to make this fat little guys even cuter! ENJOY!!
