Reindeer Cookies

These cute little cookies are sure to be a big hit with the kids this year. Don't forget to leave Santa some with a big glass of milk! Easy to make and super fun to eat. Give some as gifts, great for teachers!

1 roll of pre-made sugar cookie dough

small pretzel rings

M & Ms

1 bell shaped cookie cutter


baking sheet

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Open cookie dough and mix in about 1/4 cup of flour to make the dough a stiffer consistency. Lightly flour the table, then roll the dough out to 3/4 inch thickness.

Using the bell cookie cutter, cut out 12 bell cookies - this will vary depending on how thick you roll out the cookies. Lay the cookies, all the same way with bell facing you, onto the cookie sheet. Now, turn the cookie sheet around so that the bells are upside down. This is your reindeer face! Place a red M&M in his nose and one pretzel on each side of his head for the ears. (See photo)

Bake for 10 minutes or until very lightly browned around edges. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

These make great Christmas party favors!

My GD will be here this weekend, I think we'll make these. So cute!

I do wonder about something in the recipe, though. It says to roll the dough out to 3/4 inch thickness. Three quarters of an inch is REALLY thick. I'll probably do mine more like 3/8.

Sorry for the error, it should be 1/4 inch thick, not 3/4. I have corrected the recipe online. Thanks! :)
