- ¾ cup butter (1 ½ sticks), chilled and cut into cubes
- 1 egg
- 1 Foodstirs Organic Sweet Tooth Sugar Cookie Mix
- 1 Foodstirs Organic Vanilla Frosting Mix
- 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1 Color Kitchen Blue Plant-Based Dye Packet
- 1 Natural Snow Pearl Packet
- 1 Artisan Kettle Organic Mini Chocolate Chips
- 1 Natural Chocolate Sprinkle Packet
- 1 Natural Orange Sprinkle Packet
For the cookie, preheat oven to 350˚F. Beat butter until creamy and fluffy, then beat in the egg. Add sugar cookie mix and blend until dough comes together.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Roll cookie dough into a 9-inch square, about ¾-inch-thick. (Use the ruler on your activity sheet to help!) Transfer cookie dough to cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Once dough is cool to touch, bake until edges are lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
For the frosting, beat together butter and yogurt. Add frosting mix and beat until smooth. (If frosting is too thick, add another ½ tablespoon yogurt.) Scoop ¼ cup frosting into a small bowl and mix in Blue Color Kitchen Dye Packet. Place frosting tip in piping bag and fill with blue frosting. Refrigerate piping bag and bowl of frosting until ready to use.
Once cookies are finished baking, let stand until cool to the touch. Use the Foodstirs cookie cutter to cut out six Frozen Friends.
To assemble the Frozen Friends, using a spatula, frost each Frozen Friend with white frosting. Pour Snow Pearls onto a small plate and dip each Frosty Friend to fully cover body in fresh snow.
Remove blue frosting bag from refrigerator and cut ¼-inch from the tip. Pipe a blue scarf onto each Frozen Friend and use mini chocolate chips for eyes, chocolate sprinkles for the smiles, and orange sprinkles for the carrot noses.
