24 cookies

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coarse grain sugar
Assorted multi-colored sprinkles and small candies
Mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips
24 small pretzel sticks, halved


Heat oven to 325°F.

Combine butter and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add milk and almond flavoring; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Shape dough into 24 (1-inch) balls, 24 (3/4-inch) balls and 24 (1/2-inch) balls. Roll each in coarse grain sugar. 

Form each snowman by arranging 1 of each size ball onto cookie sheet, from small to large. Gently press balls together. Repeat with remaining balls.

Create eyes and mouth of snowmen, using sprinkles and candies. Place chocolate chips or small candies onto snowmen for buttons. Insert pretzel sticks into middle ball of snowmen for arms.

Bake 13-15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes. Carefully transfer to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Recipe Tip

Choose shiny cookie sheets made from aluminum or stainless steel for even baking and consistently shaped cookies. They should be at least 2 inches narrower and shorter than your oven’s inside dimensions to allow for proper air circulation.

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is my husband’s homemade cranberry sauce. It’s a tart and sweet sauce, with hints of orange zest and brown sugar. I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new. We still have guests lingering the day after Thanksgiving, so what better way to ease the turkey “hangover” than with homemade sweet rolls for breakfast? More ...
