I have had holiday baking on my mind a lot recently. I have always been an avid baker. My love for baking started during my childhood. Each Christmas my grandmother would round-up all of my cousins and I, and we would spend a snowy Winter day in my Grandma’s kitchen whipping up a bunch of yummy holiday creations while dancing and singing along to Christmas music.

My cousins and I no longer participate in a holiday baking day with my Grandmother. We simply all live too far from one another. However it is a lovely memory to reflect on each holiday season.

This doesn’t prevent me from getting in my own kitchen though. In fact, I think I may actually bake the most around the holidays than any other time during the year. My daughter certainly enjoys getting in on the action too.

This year Gay Lea Butter, the shortbread experts, created a number of tasty new shortbread treats. I had every intention of getting into the kitchen this week to bake up a storm and try out some of these new recipes. However, I forgot to purchase wax paper during my weekly grocery trip. So my baking is put on hold until next week. Bummer.

This did not stop me from perusing the new shortbread recipes that Gay Lea features on their website.

Don’t these Winter Wonderland Snowmen Shortbread sound adorable (and delicious)?!?

Winter Wonderland Snowmen Shortbread
Recipe courtesy of Gay Lea Foods

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups softened Gay Lea Unsalted Butter 375 mL
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar (plus extra for decorating) 175 mL
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 7 mL
  • 1/2 tsp salt 2 mL
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour 750 mL
  • Mini chocolate chips, gum drops, licorice whips, jelly beans, fruit leather etc.

Instructions:

  1. Line 3 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter with icing sugar, vanilla and salt until fluffy. Add flour and mix well.
  3. (Chill if needed until easy to handle)
  4. Measure level 2 tbsp (30 mL) portions into 8 balls for snowman bases; arrange on prepared baking sheet. Measure level 1 tbsp (15 mL) and 2 tsp (10 mL) portions respectively for 8 bellies and 8 heads of snowmen. Arrange on baking sheets. Chill dough balls for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In batches, bake largest balls for 18 minutes, medium balls for 15 minutes and smallest balls for 12 minutes or until balls are golden on the bottom and set. Cool completely. Roll in icing sugar to coat. Create a paste using additional icing sugar and water (see tip); use to stack and assemble balls into a snowman shape. Decorate as desired with candies.

Makes about 8 snowmen.

Preparation Time: 90 minutes (plus chilling)

Tip:
1. Easy Icing Sugar Glue: Stir 6 tbsp (90 mL) icing sugar with 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) water. Spoon a small dab between balls to assemble snowmen. Use toothpicks to help paste on small items such as chocolate chip eyes and buttons.

One lucky Domesticated Momma reader will have the opportunity to get in the kitchen and whip up a wonderland of Snowmen creations. Thanks to Gay Lea!
