Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. On ungreased cookie sheet, place dough rounds 2 inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Meanwhile, slightly flatten marshmallows.
  • 2
    Remove from oven, and top each cookie with marshmallow. Return to oven, and bake 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly softened.
  • 3
    Remove cookies from cookie sheets; cool completely on cooling racks. Meanwhile, separate frosting into 3 small bowls, using 1 1/4 cups to make red frosting, 1/4 cup for yellow frosting and 1/4 cup for black frosting. Add food color to each, and mix to get desired colors (red, yellow and black). Frost and decorate cookies to look like Santa’s belly, using photo as a guide.

Expert Tips

As an alternative to yellow and black frosting, try using colorful candies (black licorice, gumdrops, mini candy-coated chocolates) to customize Santa’s belt and buckle.

Store cookies in covered container.

It does help to flatten the marshmallows slightly before frosting if they seem too puffy.
