Melting snowmen cookies

Makes 18-20

Vanilla biscuit

125g butter

125g caster sugar

1 eggs

250g plain flour

Dash of vanilla extract

Decoration

300g Icing sugar

few drops lemon juice

food colouring

20 large white marshmallows

dark chocolate (melted)

Method

To make the biscuit, cream the butter & sugar together until pale in colour.

Add the egg and vanilla essence, mix.

Finally add the flour and mix.

Once combined wrap and chill for 1 hour.

Once rested, roll the dough out on a floured surface and cut 10 round discs.

Place these on a lined baking tray, egg wash and sprinkle with

caster sugar and bake at 165C for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

While baking, place the icing sugar in a bowl and add some lemon juice until a smooth thick paste

is reached. You can divide this up and colour some of this with food colouring to create the orange

nose and green buttons on the snowman.

Melt the chocolate and place in a small piping bag and pipe the eyes, eyebrows and mouth on the

marshmallow, also pipe on some orange icing for the nose and place in the fridge to set.

Once the biscuits are cooked and cooled, spoon on some of the lemon icing on the cookie, place

the marshmallow head on top of this and taking your melted chocolate again, pipe on the hands

and use the green icing for the buttons.

Allow to dry before serving.

If you do not fancy making the different coloured icings you are able to buy different coloured

edible markers in cake shops and these will also work perfectly fine.

Enjoy!
