READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 5 snowmen




  • Add cream cheese to a bowl. Transfer 1 tablespoon of cream cheese to a small pastry bag and set aside. Slice 3 of the scallions and add to the bowl with the cream cheese, along with the everything bagel seasoning. Stir to combine.
  • Scoop 16 balls of cream cheese, about 1 tablespoon each, onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze 2 hours until set.
  • Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut pizza dough into 16 even pieces. ?Stretch and flatten each piece and place on the prepared baking sheet. ?Place a frozen cream cheese ball onto each of the dough pieces. Seal and roll to enclose.
  • Add the egg and a splash of water to a bowl and beat to combine. Brush dough balls with egg wash. Add peppercorns for eyes and smiles onto 5 dough balls. Bake at 425F for 13-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat and prepare an ice bath. Add remaining 2 scallions to boiling water for 10 seconds, then immediately transfer to ice bath. Drain and pat dry on a paper towel. Trim into individual “scarves.”.
  • Cut carrots into rounds at the thickest end so that you have 5 thick rounds. Cut top hat shapes out of the rounds with a small paring knife.
  • Now cut remaining carrots into rounds at the thinner end so that you have 2 thin rounds. Trim those so that you have 5 small triangle noses.
  • Add 3 bagel bombs to each skewer, making sure the ball with the peppercorns is at the top. You should have 5 snowmen skewers.
  • Carefully stick on the carrot hat into the skewer point so that it’s secure. Wrap around a scallion scarf. Use the reserved cream cheese to attach the carrot noses to the faces.
