It's snowing in Georgia!!
Well..maybe it's only snowing in my Snowman Cookies..hehe!
We have been crafting over @ Grandma's house..that would be my house and yes I'm the Grandma!
We made snowflakes, hand print ornaments, foot print ornaments, baby Jesus in the manger crafts..etc.
Thank you Pinterest!
It took a little longer and was a little messier this year as our family has been blessed with grandbaby #5.
She is beyond adorable and precious (of course), and after four and a half short months, we can not imagine life without her.
The tiny little cookie you see in the middle, I made just for our sweet little princess.
Aren't they just the sweetest!
They certainly aren't the most perfect!
I have a confession. I can not pipe!
I seriously can not even pipe a straight line.
You can easily see how I had to scrape off the royal icing only to try, try again.
The good news is, they don't have to be perfect. Plus, I only used RI for my background. Sprinkles, fondant and candy easily cute these little cookies right on up.
And that..makes me Merry!
I decided to try Georganne's chocolate cut-out cookies recipe.
Yum! It was really hard not to eat all the cookie dough while I baked these babies up!
I used 4 1/2 x 3 inch cookie cutter from my Ateco rectangular cookie set for the large cookie and the 1 3/4 x 1 inch for the mini cookie.
I mixed sky blue with a little electric blue for my royal icing.
I piped the outlines with full strength RI while adding water a few drops at a time to make 10 second RI to flood the cookies.

I used white, black and red fondant to make my snowmen.
I used my snowman cookie cutter to cut out just the section I wanted on each cookie.
I also used it to cut out a black fondant hat.
I then turned the cutter upside down to cut a slight curve in the hat and top of snowman. I then fit these two pieces together.
I cut out a simple red fondant scarf and an orange Airheads nose.
I attached the fondant snowmen to the cookies as well as the sprinkles with corn syrup.
So easy for a piping challenged cookie decorator!
I think these turned out pretty cute.
I can always tell if I'm right when the grandbabies ooh and ahh over it!
Do you wanna eat a snowman!?
Merry Christmas To You & Your Families
