Eggless American Snowman Cookies

Xmas is around the corner and many of us will be getting ready to have a fabulous xmas and new year party. This time am not at home and happy that am in India to have those celebrations here. However i'll be missing our usual Xmas feast and New year bash with my H and kids.For this month's Home Baker's Challenge, a monthly baking event, Priya R of Cook Like Priya suggested us many wonderful xmas themed bakes from around the World. Her choices of challenges are just amazing and she chosed varieties of cookies, breads and cakes which suits prefectly for the Xmas celebrations.

This baking event,which we started before few months have been successfulling going around with loads of supports from the members of this group,thanks to each and everyone for being a part of this huge success..Xmas celebration table will always have wonderful foods, bakes and desserts, i cant imagine my xmas party without cakes or cookies. Everyone year i'll prepare rich fruits cakes and this time i opted for this snowman cookies from the recipes suggested by Priya. Look at those cute looking snowman cookies, the picture itself speaks a lot na, trust me these cuties are dangerously addictive. My kids gone crazy once they saw these cute cookies, they just enjoyed thoroughly these eggless beauties.Very prefect eggless butter cookies for the Christmas celebration if you dont eat eggs.


Recipe Source: Taste of Home
2+1/2cup All purpose flour
1cup Sugar
1cup Softened butter
1tsp Water
1/4tsp Almond extract
Red & Green liquid food colouring(i used blue liquid)
Few poppyseeds (for eyes)

Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until they turns light and fluffy.

Add in the water and extract, gradually add the flour and mix well.

Place 1/3cup of dough in two small bowls.

Add red food colouring in one and green or blue to the other and mix until the dough turns red and green or blue dough.

Shape the remaining dough (white dough) as small balls and medium sized balls.

Place the smaller one above the larger ball on a baking sheet and flatten it slightly.

Shape a small ball from the coloured dough for hat and place it above the head.

Preheat the oven to 350F..

For the scarf, shape each colour as a rope, twist them together,leaving one end untwisted.

Place the scarf around the snowman's neck.

Place two poppyseeds for eyes and nose.

Bake for 15minutes in the middle rack.

Cool it completely before removing from the baking sheet.

Enjoy.
