Betty Tabb of Mifflintown, Pennsylvania writes that her soft cookies are especially well-received when she enfolds them in colored tissue before placing them in holiday containers. "It's a pretty way to deliver the snowmen," she confirms.—Betty Tabb, Mifflintown, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 3-1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Miniature semisweet chocolate chips and green and red M&M's Minis
  • FROSTING:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • Red and/or green food coloring
  • Miniature milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. In another bowl, whisk flour and baking powder; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°. Shape dough into thirty 1-in. balls, thirty 3/4-in. balls and thirty 1/2-in. balls. On ungreased baking sheets, place one ball of each size, side by side, for each snowman.
  3. Bake 18-20 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven; immediately add chocolate chips for eyes and M&M's for buttons. Remove carefully from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  4. For frosting, in a small bowl, beat confectioners' sugar, extract and enough milk to reach a piping consistency. If two colors of frosting are desired, transfer half of the frosting to another bowl; tint with food coloring.
  5. Cut a small hole in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag; fill with frosting. Pipe scarves on snowmen. Use frosting to attach chocolate kisses for hats. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

The cookie is OK -- doesn't spread out at all. So we ended up with 3 balls barely stuck together. They broke apart. Followed the recipe to a "t". Won't be making again.

I love this recipe! Except I make one round cookie and in the last couple of minutes of baking I press a Butterfinger or Reeses Bell in the cookie. It is amazing!

I make these cookies every year for my Family's annual Christmas Bunco Party. They are delicious! I serve them on colored tissue paper.
