  • 1 16.5 ounce refrigerator sugar cookie dough or homemade sugar cookies
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 12 marshmallows
  • 1 pouch each Betty Crocker™ Cookie Icing in white, red, and black
  • 2 edible markers black and orange


  • Place 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ sugar cookie dough, 1 egg yolk, and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  • Scoop 2-tablespoon-size (12) balls of cookie dough onto cookie sheets covered with silicone baking mats or cooking parchment paper. Refrigerate dough balls 15 minutes. Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Bake chilled cookies 12 to 14 minutes or until light brown.
  • Let cool completely before decorating.
  • Draw eyes and a mouth on the marshmallows using the black edible marker. Then draw the nose using the orange edible marker. Set aside.
  • On cooled cookies, draw a “snow" using the white cookie icing. TIP: Draw the outline of the puddle, then go back and fill in the shape.
  • While the icing is still wet, immediately place a marshmallow to one side of the cookie
  • Then make the arms and buttons with the black cookie icing and the scarf with the red cookie icing.
