  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes or until easy to handle. Shape dough into 1-in., 3/4-in. and 1/2-in. balls. For each snowman, gently press one of each size ball together; gently roll in remaining sugar. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Break pretzel sticks in half; press into the sides of each cookie, forming arms. Bake at 325° for 15-18 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute before removing to wire racks. Decorate as desired using frosting and orange gumdrop noses. Yield: about 4 dozen.
