When I make Christmas cookies, I like to make an assortment that look pretty when packaged together. These snowflake cookies are inspired by Disney’s Frozen and they’re absolutely impressive. Yet, you’ll love how easy they are to make.
You roll the cookie dough into a ball and then roll into your sprinkle before pressing down. It looks much fancier than it actually is. If you’re running short on time, just freeze your dough for later. You can also make the dough ahead of time and freeze for later use. Just let it thaw first.
With the upcoming holiday season and Disney’s Frozen 2 coming out in 2019, I’ve been really into the film’s characters. These cute Olaf Cookies are fun to make with the younger kids and they also love this Olaf Slime Recipe.
How To Make Disney’s Frozen Snowflake Cookies
To start, make your icing first. Using the standing mixer, combine the egg whites, cream of tarter, vanilla and powder sugar and mix until combined and stiff peaks form. Using the piping bag, pipe out 24 thick snowflakes.
Allow to dry overnight. Place left over icing into the fridge to use for the center of the cookies.
For the cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a standing mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth.
Mix in the egg yolks and vanilla extract.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually beat in the flour mixture into the butter mixture until combined. Scoop dough out and roll into a tablespoon size ball. Pour the sprinkles into a small bowl.
Roll dough ball into sprinkles and place onto the cookie sheet.
Repeat steps for about 11 more cookies. Bake 12 cookies at a time. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
Using the back of a tablespoon make an indent into the cookies. Allow cookies to cool completely before moving onto a wire rack. Finish baking remaining dough.
Once cookies are baked and cooled, pipe icing into the center of the cookie. Allow icing to harden for 30 minutes.
Carefully remove snowflake from parchment paper and pipe a small dollop onto the back of the snowflake. Carefully place snowflake into the center of the icing.
