Snowman Snowflakes (Italian Cookie Recipe)
 
Ingredients
  • 5 eggs
  • 1½ cups salted butter melted and cooled (10 minutes)
  • 5-6 cups flour
  • 1 ¾ sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. In large bowl stir together flour, sugar and baking powder, make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the egg mixture then vanilla. Mix, until shiny. About 2 minutes. Cover bowl with waxed paper and let the dough stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. When rolling out this dough, don’t be afraid to add flour. It will not make the dough tough.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees roll out dough to ⅜” thick with flour and cut with cookie cutter.
  3. Bake 12 minutes
  4. Makes at least 5 dozen (3 inch) cookies.
  5. Let cookies completely cool before icing.
Notes
Icing Recipe
2 cups confectioners’ (powdered) sugar
4 Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon corn syrup
In small bowl mix together until smooth add more milk/water if too thick or confectioners’ sugar if too thin.
Add food coloring and mix well. I prefer Americolor food coloring.
When you pull up some icing on a spatula and drizzle it back into the bowl, the design should disappear in 10 seconds for the correct consistency.
Outline the cookie with a #2 tip and use a #3 tip to fill in the design.
Let icing set on decorated cookies before storing, this takes about 12 hours.
The cookies won’t go stale, the icing is covering the tops preserving the freshness.

 

I wrapped the snowmen up in bags and cut snowflake type paper to trim them off with. I’m sure they will be gone as quick as a snowflake melts on a sunny day. Once they are delivered.

I love snowflake cookies, and these were really fun to do.

    I’m just wondering about the 5-6 cups flour – do you just start with 5 cups and add more as needed? How much did you use?

    • 6

      yes I start with 5 and then add flour as needed, often I wind up using 6 six cups, sometimes I have used a little less, on colder days the dough may be colder and on hotter days (like it is where I live) it seems I need some more. If you have any doubts on the consistency, bake 2 cookies and see how they turn out.
