RECIPE FOR PEANUT SNOWMEN
Title:Peanut Snowmen
Category:Jar Gifts
Peanut Snowmen

Source: Better Homes and Gardens

These quick cookies begin with a favorite purchased cookie and end with candy decorations. Just one step comes between start and finish: a simple icing.

1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 4 teaspoons milk
15 peanut-shaped peanut butter sandwich cookies
15 large gumdrops
Granulated sugar
Candy decorations or decorator icing

To present as a gift
Fabric scraps
2 clear glass plates in 2 sizes
Scissors

For icing, in a small bowl combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and enough milk to make a thin icing consistency. Spread about 1 teaspoon icing over the top and sides of each peanut butter cookie so that the texture of the cookie shows through.

To make gumdrop hats, roll a large gumdrop into an oval in granulated sugar. Roll oval into a cone shape; press to seal ends. Curl up bottom edge of cone to form a brim. Attach hat to head of peanut butter snowman with icing. Add candy decorations or decorator icing to make dots for eyes and buttons. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes 15 snowmen.

To present this as a gift: Tear the fabric into squares slightly larger than the larger plate. Trim threads, if needed. Arrange the fabric squares on the larger plate, placing so that each corner shows. Place the smaller plate on top. Arrange cookies on smaller plate.

Also try this: Use two or three coordinating paper napkins between the plates.
