Refrigerated cookie dough is fun to roll into ropes and wind into cookie snowmen. Let the kids help make them and decorate them!

Ingredients

1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
Large gumdrops
Miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
Coarse white sparkling sugar, if desired

Steps

  • 1 In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in 1/4 cup all-purpose flour until well blended. Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic wrap. Freeze 10 minutes.
  • 2 Heat oven to 350ºF. Shape half of dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. With fingers, roll each ball into 10-inch rope, about 1/4 inch wide; carefully place on ungreased cookie sheets. With each rope, starting at top, make small spiral for head, continuing to make larger spiral for body, in an "s" shape.
  • 3 Cut hat shapes from gumdrops; place on heads. Use baking bits for buttons, eyes and noses. Cut small pieces from red gumdrop for mouths. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
  • 4 Bake 9 to 13 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
