The secret to these sweet snowman cookies is in their scarves -- they're cut out of fruit leather. The foundation of this recipe is the versatile dough that can be customized to create chocolate, colored, striped, or marbleized cookies.
Instead of rolling out your dough on a floured surface, roll it out between waxed paper. The cookies will stay moist because extra flour is not incorporated during the rolling process.
Cut out snowmen shapes from the cookie dough and bake as directed. When the cookies have cooled, use frosting to adhere features to the snowmen. To form two snowmen's scarves, cut a 7-inch piece of fruit leather in half lengthwise and cut notches form the ends. Tie the scarves around the snowmen's neck.
