Re-thinking the Snowman Cutter

It’s been another wacky week of weather out in West Texas.  We we went from almost summer to a huge snowstorm.  We don’t often get snow, so it was pretty exciting.   I decided to take advantage of this last little bit of cold and use it as an excuse to make one last round of snowmen.

Most of the time when I get creative with cutters I change them into something completely new.  Not this time, though. Even though I used snowmen cutters to make snowmen, I completely changed them from the way they were intended to be used.

No fancy trimming or piecing here, though, just a little flip.  For some reason, the facial view is more appealing to me than the full bodied version.

Anyway, since I spent two hours on Pinterest instead of packing for a trip, I have to make it snappy.  So, here’s the short version.  Pick any colors you like and use a #2 tip to outline and fill in alternating sections.  Remember to allow drying time in between filling.

When the cookie is filled, let it dry overnight.  Add a cute little face to the dry cookie.  To simplify it even further, you can use black candy pearls for eyes rather than icing.  Whatever works for you.  I’ll show you a little trick to make it even easier in a couple of days.  Let them dry and you’re done.

Pretty much the easiest snowmen cookies ever.  So easy, it’s almost magic.  Seriously.  Take them over to you’re neighbor and I bet she will magically agree to watch your house for a few days.

As much as I would rather stay here and hang out on the Intenets, I’m off to pack like a responsible adult.  But if you’re like me and would rather look at cookies than do chores, go visit my friend Georgeanne.  She’s having a linky party all about SNOWMEN!  Link up your snowman cookies and do not curse me after you spend two hours checking out everyone else’s.  LOTS of fun cookies in one place!

Have a wonderful day, cookie friends!

    Very creative! Thinking outside of the box! Love it!
    By the way, with all the cookies you bake and decorate, does your family even eat them any more? Just wondering if they are tired of the flavor (never tired of the ideas, I am sure!).

      Heck no, LOL, I have to make the neighbors take them! Usually I can send them to the school the teachers are always happy to get them too!

    I’m always trying to think of creative ways to use my 101 piece kit. It seems like every time I go to bake a cookie not one of those 101 are sufficient. I am definitely going to do this for my cookies. Tanks for the tip.

    It astounds me how you can see shapes on cookie cutters not meant to be used for that. I’m A very “inside “the box kind of person and I can’t visualize like this. I think you should make a chart of all the ways you can use cutters. I’d pay for it:)
