For the cookies:

  3. Sift dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Mix well.
  4. Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
  5. Drop 1” round spoonful on cookie sheet and press to flatten (about ⅛” thick) into circle shape.

  7. Cool completely on wire rack.
For the icing:
  1. Beat egg whites lightly in a large bowl using an electric mixer until frothy.

  5. Arrange cookies about 1 inch apart on a large sheet of waxed paper.
  6. Drip icing onto each cookie, allowing icing to drip over edges to look like melting snow.
  7. Grease a microwave-safe plate and place marshmallows on the plate.
  8. Microwave marshmallows until they start to puff up, about 30 seconds.
  9. Immediately place marshmallows on the edge of each cookie while the icing is still wet to look like a melted snowman.
Decorating:
  1. Decorate melted snowmen by piping twig-like arms using black decorating gel on the icing.
  2. Make coal eyes and mouth on the marshmallows using black decorating gel.
  3. Make a carrot nose under the coal eyes using orange decorating gel.
  4. Make coat buttons using black decorating gel.
  5. Make scarves or bow ties using red or green decorating gel.
  6. Allow cookies to fully dry before removing from waxed paper, at least 1 hour.
