Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.

Remove dough from refrigerator; divide into 12 equal pieces. Divide each piece into 1 small, 1 medium and 1 large piece. Roll into smooth balls. On greased baking sheet, arrange balls in a row, with edges touching to make a snow person. Flatten slightly with palm of hand. Repeat with remaining dough to make 12 snow people. Allow 2 inches between snow people on baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake at 375oF for 15 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack, Brush with Lemon Glaze; decorate with mini chocolate chips or currants to make face and buttons. Tie colored ribbons on necks for scarves. Cut out hats from colored paper; secure on heads with toothpicks.
