Fleischmann's®
 
 
Ingredients
 
Dough
4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 envelopes Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter OR margarine, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 eggs
1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon peel
Lemon Glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 to 3 tablespoons water
Decorations such as chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, red hots, candies or fruit snack strips
 
Instructions
 
Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120o to130oF). Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs, lemon peel and 1 cup flour. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.

Remove dough from refrigerator; divide into 12 equal pieces. Divide each piece into 1 small, 1 medium and 1 large piece. Roll into smooth balls. Arrange balls in a row on greased baking sheets, with edges touching to make a snowman. Flatten slightly with palm of hand. Repeat with remaining dough to make 12 snowmen. Allow 2 inches between snowmen on baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 35 to 45 minutes.

Bake at 375oF for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack, Drizzle with Lemon Glaze; decorate with chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, red hots or candies for face and buttons. Use fruit snack strips to make a scarf.
 
Lemon Glaze
Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl.  Add enough water to make glaze spreading consistency. Stir until smooth.
