1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

    Shape dough into 30 cookies: (10) 1 1/4-inch balls (about 2 tablespoons), (10) 1-inch balls (about 1 tablespoon), and (10) 3/4-inch balls (about 1 teaspoon). Place same size balls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  3. STEP 3

    Bake 1 1/4-inch balls 9-11 minutes, 1-inch balls 8-9 minutes and 3/4-inch balls 5-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool 10 minutes.

  4. STEP 4

    Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar. Press black sugar pearls into larger cookies (base and body) for buttons and into smallest cookie to create face. Use toothpick to create hole for nose. Press orange jimmies into face for nose.

  5. STEP 5

    For each hat, cut 1​ gumdrop in half, flatten bottom half into 3/4-inch disk (discard top half). Cut base off another gumdrop; attach, sticky-side down, to disk. Place on top of snowmen. Repeat with remaining gumdrops. Use fruit roll to create scarf, if desired.

  6. STEP 6

    Heat oven to 375ºF.

  7. STEP 7

    Stack cookies, larger to smaller, to make snowmen.
