Reindeer cookiesChristmas week is here! Are you doing holiday baking?  These fun and festive peanut butter cookies are great to make with kids and taste delicious too! To make the reindeer cookies for your self follow the recipe below.

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Chocolate covered pretzels
  • Mini Brown M&Ms or chocolate chips
  • 1.2 cup shortening
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Regular sized M&M’s

Combine first four ingredients in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until blended. Lightly beat in egg. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add creamed mixture at low speed. Mix until just blended. Form dough into 1 inch balls. To make reindeer shape pinch the bottom of the ball slightly to form a point and gently flatten with your hand. Space cookies approx 2 inches apart and bake for 7 to 8 min in oven preheated to 375 degrees.

Remove from oven and immediately press two mini chocolate covered pretzels in to the tops of the cookies to form antlers, two mini brown M&M’s for the eyes and one red M&M for the nose. Allow to cool for a few minutes on cookie tray before transferring to wire rack.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
