|1 cup||Butter or margarine,softened|
|1½ cup||Granulated sugar|
|1 teaspoon||Vanilla extract|
|2¾ cup||All-purpose flour|
|Miniature chocolate chips|
Preheat oven to 350øF. In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until smooth. In a small bowl, combine flour and salt. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture; stir until a soft dough forms. For each cookie, shape 3 small balls of dough, graduated in size. Place on a greased baking sheet and flatten balls slightly to resemble a snowman (cookies should be about 4½ inches long). Break pretzels into twig shapes. Insert pieces of broken pretzels into sides of cookies for arms. Press small pieces of pretzels onto cookies for mouths.
Press chocolate chips onto cookies for eyes, noses, and buttons. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 14 cookies Typed in MMFormat by cjhartlin@... Source: Christmas Cheer Recipes Posted to MM-Recipes Digest by "Cindy Hartlin" <cjhartlin@...> on Nov 17, 1999
