 If frozen thaw the Festive Cookie dough in the refrigerator overnight.  
 Or palce dough in a microwave-safe mixing bowl; cover with waxed paper. 
 Microcook on 10% power for 5 minutes or till thawed.  For each snow
 person, shape dough into 3 balls one 1 inch ball, one 3/4 inch ball and
 one 1/2 inch ball.  Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet in
 decreasing sizes with sides touching.  Press together slightly.  Press 2
 chocoalte pieces in smallest ball for eyes.  Press 1 red cinnamon andy
 in middle ball and 2 candies in largest ball for buttons.  Bake in a
 325° oven about 18 minutes or till edges are firm and bottoms are light
 golden brown.  Cool 1 minute on baking sheet.  Carefully transfer to a
 wire rack; cool.  To make the icing for decorating the cookies, in small
 mixing bowl stir together the 3/4 cup powdered sugar and enough milk (2
 to 3 t.) to make an icing of piping consistency.  Stir in the green food
 coloring.  To make hats for the snow people, attach peanut butter cups
 to the heads with icing.  With a decorating bag and writing or star tip,
 pipe bow ties, belts, scarves or stocking caps on the snow people with
 the remaining icing.  Lightly sprinkle the snow people with powdered
 sugar.  Makes about 16 cookies.  Source:  Better Homes & Gardens
