One cannot have Advent without cookies, and when a friend of mine showed me the recipe for these Reindeer cookies I couldn't have been more excited! They are so simple to make. They work better if you use peanut butter cookie dough, but since my children don't like peanut butter cookies I used sugar cookie dough. What ever dough you choose to use prepare according to directions. Then roll dough in a ball, roll in sugar, and then flatten with the back of your hand creating a circle. Then in the center of each ball pinch almost together creating what looks like a 8 shape. Add the pretzels and the nose (red hots). Bake until golden brown. As soon as you take out of the oven place on the eyes. You can use raisins or chocolate chips. My children had so much fun making these. Enjoy! On another note, Only one week until we leave for our ski trip to Utah! Yahoo!
