They have such cute ideas for Christmas this year. 

The only difficult part is finding the dough in stock at your local grocery store!

We previously published our Christmas-themed Double Decker Cookies.

And we just shared our Christmas Tree Sandwich Cookies, too.

And now we’re going to show you another creative approach to using this dough.

Adorable Snowman Sandwich Cookies

🔑 Key to Success #1 – Let’s Be Cool

One of the main components of this easy cookie recipe is Pillsbury Shape Sugar Cookie Dough.

If you’ve never seen this product before, it’s basically chilled sugar cookie dough with a Christmas shape embedded in it.

The cookies are precut, making them simple to use.

To bake the cookies, simply follow the package guidelines.

Remove the cookies from the oven and set them aside to cool completely before assembling the sandwich cookies.

If you add the frosting before the cookies have completely cooled, the frosting may melt and become a runny mess.

If you need the cookies to chill faster, place them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Remember that the cookies must be at room temperature or cooler before adding the frosting.

🔑 Key to Success #2 – Make the Frosting Silky Smooth

If you have a little extra time, you can make homemade buttercream frosting for these cookies.

But we’re taking a shortcut by using our favorite white frosting from the grocery store.

I use Duncan Hines Whipped Fluffy White icing to make these cookies.

The clean white tint of this frosting, in my opinion, accentuates the appearance of the colorful sprinkles.

You might use another white frosting or a chocolate frosting instead.

Whatever frosting you use, make sure to thoroughly mix it before using it.

I prefer to scoop the frosting into a separate bowl and mix it with a hand mixer until it is light and creamy.

Spoon the frosting into a plastic zip-top baggie and snip off the tip to use as a piping bag.

Squeeze the icing onto the bottom of one of the cooled cookies.

Add about 1/2 inch of icing on the cookie, then top with another cookie.

Continue making sandwich cookies in this manner until all of the cookies are gone.

Remember that the cookies must be at room temperature or cooler before adding the frosting.

🔑 Key to Success #3 – Decorate with Nonpareil Sprinkles

After you’ve added the frosting and topped them with the lid, roll them in sprinkles.

Nonpareil sprinkles are used in this simple Christmas dessert.

What exactly are nonpareil sprinkles?

Nonpareil sprinkles are little balls of sprinkles.

They are small, spherical, and come in a variety of color combinations.

Nonpareils can be found at your local craft store or on Amazon.

Nonpareils are sometimes sold in colorful combinations for special occasions.

I used a Christmas nonpareil mix with red, green, and white nonpareils.
