“Do You Want to Build a Snowman”? Make these Olaf Snowman Cookies for your next winter or Frozen party!
When we celebrated Isabelle’s second birthday, we went the theme of Frozen. The kids got to build their snowman butter cookies with the song “Do You Want to Build a Snowman”? playing in the background.
These cookies did take some time to prepare, but they came out so cute. I doubled the recipe below to make enough Olaf Cookies for eight kids. I used this cutout as my stencils for cutting out the dough and for decorating the cookies.
This icing recipe I used was from Wilton using meringue powder.
Olaf Snowman Cookies
- 125 gr butter, unsalted
- 100 gr sugar
- 1/2 ea vanilla bean pod, de-seeded
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 ea egg
- pinch salt
- 250 gr flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- Gather all ingredients and equipment. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
- In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar in a mixer with the paddle attachment. Add vanilla extract, vanilla bean seeds, and egg. Mix well.
- Add flour, salt, and baking powder into the butter mixture. Mix until well incorporated.
- Form dough into two disks, wrap with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes
- Roll out one disk of dough until 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface.
- Cut out the Olaf Pieces, using them as your guides for cutting out the cookies. I used a small paring knife for this process. I also used them when it came to decorating.
- Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
