1 hr 15 min
Prep Time
1 hr 45 min
Total Time


1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon milk

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

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

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

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

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

  6. STEP 6

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

Tip #1

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.
