Melted Snowman Cookies

These are an adorable treat for the Christmas season. Kids will love them!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbs sour cream
2-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

1.  Beat together butter, shortening, sugar, and eggs. Add vanilla and sour cream.

2.  Blend in flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.

3.  Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

4.  Grab a golf ball size chunk of dough and squish it down until it's 1/4 - 1/2" thick. Do not worry about the shape or how lumpy it is, the more misshaped the better.

5.  Bake for 8 minutes. Let Cool.

6.  Frost with white icing (let a little run over the edges for a puddle look).

7.  Spray a microwave-safe plate with cooking spray, and place marshmallows on plate. Microwave 30 seconds or until marshmallows start to puff. Grease fingers and carefully pull marshmallows, by the base, off, and set them on top of the frosted cookies.

8.  With colored frosting, add eyes, nose, arms, etc
