Then I couldn't find a snowglobe cookie cutter and I couldn't find any snowflake sprinkles... I finally found the snowflakes... and decided to make my own snowglobe cookie cutter! It really ended up being quite simple... just take a circle cookie cutter and bend it in 4 places to make a base. The top sort of adjusts itself, so it's easy to get the right shape!
I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe, though you can't fit too many on a cookie sheet!
Of course, the best part for Ellie was watching them bake. She just parked herself in front of the oven for a while!
Looking good, Mom!
The baked cookies...
This year I did something different than I've ever done before... I put my frosting in bottles instead of in decorator's bags. It was a great way to decorate quickly! I will definitely use this idea again if I'm working with color flow frosting!
One step at a time... first the base of the snowglobe, frosted and sugared immediately.
Then the top of the snowglobe, complete with gingerbread men, snowflakes, and course sugar snow!
Finish it off with some white frosting and non pareil snow and you have a very fun cookie!!
They were very fun to make, and pretty darn cute, too!!
