2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt


6 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)

24 marshmallows

Decorator candies, as desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Beat granulated sugar, butter and brown sugar in bowl at medium speed until well mixed. Add eggs, cream of tartar and vanilla, beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape dough into 24 balls. Place, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Melt candy coating according to package directions.

  6. STEP 6

    Make 1 snowman at a time, spreading 1 tablespoon melted candy coating in center of cookie to resemble melting snow. Place marshmallow onto cookie for head. Decorate as desired, adding face, scarf, buttons, arms, etc., using candy coating to attach, if necessary. Repeat with remaining cookies and decorations. Reheat candy coating, if necessary.

Tip #1

To make snowman head appear as if melting, microwave marshmallow 5-10 seconds to soften. Watch carefully so it does not over soften and puff up. Attach to cookie, pressing down on marshmallow to flatten slightly. Decorate as above.
