Snow Globe Snowman Sugar Cookies

After weeks of bitter sub-zero mornings, the only thing on people's minds around here is the cold.  It is cold, cold, cold.  I made these cookies with the rest of the holiday bunch, but didn't get them posted.  Since I started the week with the snowman mini-cakes, I'll continue with the snowman theme for the remainder of the week.  Mix a batch of sugar cookie dough.  Recipe here.
No snow globe cookie cutter?  No problem. You can use other cutters to come up with the shape.  I use a round cookie cutter and a house cookie cutter.  Using a round cookie cutter, cut 2 circle cookies for each snow globe.  Then, place the base of the house cookie cutter in the center of one circle to form the base of the snow globe.
Then, using the round cookie cutter again, place the cutter where the other circle cookie will sit to make the shape of a snow globe (below).  Press and remove the dough on the inside of the round cutter.  Line up the circle cookie dough (globe) with the base and lightly press the dough together to secure the base to the globe.
Bake 350F for 9min.  Remove and cool.  Spread sky blue frosting across the entire globe.
 Place snowflake sprinkles and then get ready to pipe snowmen.
 For more detailed instruction on the snowmen, you can see the snow globes I decorated last year.
 3 round cicles for the snowman body. Thinly piped chocolate frosting for the stick arms.  Sprinkle eyes and orange sprinkle nose.  Thick chocolate frosting piping for the snow globe base.
This is a quick design (very suitable for frosting rather than royal icing) that everyone seems to love..."Oh look...it's a snow-globe cookie!"
