Snowman Sandwich

Snap Pea Tree Edible Art

Lunches around here have been pretty fun lately because my son and I have been using our Christmas and winter cookie cutters to make edible art scenes.  I hate to see all of my cookie cutters just collect dust in the pantry for most of the year so I was thrilled to find another use for them beyond the typical seasonal sugar cookies.

This is such a quick and easy lunch.  Our snowman was a grilled ham and cheese but you can use the sandwich and cookie cutter shapes of your choice.  If you have older kids, let them build their own scenes.  My older son just turned three and he had a ball cutting out sandwiches, cheese and fruit with the cookie cutters.  This is one instance where I think playing with food is perfectly acceptable!  It is especially perfect for a cold winter day when you need an indoor project.
