Sweet Reindeer

Here are the reindeer cookies that I made for last Friday when Polar Express Day is THIS Friday. California Kim asked for a picture:
Cute, no?  We make these every year at Christmas. And because I am a giver, I'm going to post the recipe.  Amateur bakers, beware.  This is really only for advanced cooks. 

Reindeer Cookies (printable version here)
1 package slice and bake sugar cookie dough (Although I usually make homemade cookies, these are really better from slice and bake dough.)
chocolate chips
Mini pretzels

Slice the roll into rounds.  Gently squeeze the sides in to make a filled 8 shape.
Press pretzels in for antlers.
Add 2 chocolate chips and 1 red M&M for eyes and nose.
Bake as directed on package.

Act modest when your kids think you are the best mom in the world.

Those are so cute! I prefer the pre-made dough for sugar cookies; I can never get it the right consistency to roll it out and cut out shapes.

These are the cutest things and so simple that I might even be able to pull them off!!

Thanks for sharing!!
