  1. Mmmmmm, these are one of my favorites as well. I love yoru little Frosty. He's not creepy like the one in Christmas With the Kranks. Well, and he's not huge. I think I like the old fashioned one better.

  3. Great recipe, Nan! I made these today for my Library's holiday party. They went over great (every last one eaten). James (the 9 year old) made the icing and said they were awesome. Well, still warm from the oven and slathered with icing...oh yes.
