Step 1

Beat the softened butter and sugar till creamy. Add the water and almond extract. Mix well. Add the plain flour in three stages and beat well with a spoon.

Step 2

Snowman Cookies - Step 2

Remove 1/3 cup of dough and add red food gel or liquid colour. Remove any 1/3 cup of dough and add green food gel or liquid colour. Knead both doughs well. Wrap the three doughs in cling film.and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Preheat oven at 175 degrees. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.

Step 4

To shape the snowman, use measuring spoons to measure the dough so that all the snowmen are of the same size. I used 1 tablespoon measuring spoon for the snowman's body and 1/2 tablespoon measuring spoon for the snowman's head. Make 12 ball for the body and 12 balls for the head.

Step 5

Place six heads and bodies on one tray about an inch apart. Repeat with the remaining balls on the other tray.

Step 6

Take 1/4 teaspoons of red and green colour dough and shape into two ropes. Twist them around one another and place between the body and head of each snowman.

Step 7

Shape 1 teaspoon dough into the hat and 1/2 teaspoon into the brim of the hat. You will be able to make 6 red snowmen hats and 6 green snowmen hats.

Step 8

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 15 - 18 minutes till lightly brown. The biscuits will still be soft and after about 10 minutes they will harden - transfer onto a cooling rack.


Place the dough at least an inch apart or the cookies will stick to each other.
