Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

2 cups sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour / plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

miniature semisweet chocolate chips, and green and red m&m's minis

1 cup confectioners' sugar / icing sugar (frosting)

1/8 teaspoon coconut extract (frosting)

2 to 4 teaspoons milk (frosting)

red and/or green food coloring (frosting)

miniature milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped (frosting)

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. In another bowl, whisk flour and baking powder; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.

2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F / 163 degrees C / Gas 3 Warm. Shape dough into forty-eight 1-in. balls, forty-eight 3/4-in. balls and forty-eight 1/2-in. balls. On ungreased baking sheets, place one ball of each size, side by side, for each snowman.

3. Bake 18-20 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven; cool on pans 2 minutes. Press on chocolate chips for eyes and M&M's for buttons. Carefully remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

4. For the frosting. In a small bowl, beat confectioners' sugar, extract and enough milk to reach a piping consistency. If two colors of frosting are desired, transfer half of the frosting to another bowl; tint with food coloring.

5. Cut a small hole in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag; fill with frosting. Pipe scarves on snowmen. Use frosting to attach chocolate kisses for hats.

Bon Appetit!
