Ok y'all, I know that Christmas is over, but Winter (or our sunny excuse for one) is still going strong. After running around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to finish our pre- and post-holiday activities, you probably don't want to spend 4 1/2 hours baking these sugar cookies. But surely you have an extra two minutes to make these cute little Marshmallow Snowmen? Do this with your kids as you pack away the decorations until next year, as a final, tasty, easy hurrah to send off the season. I bet you will get a smile outta someone!
