How to Make Reindeer cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375°F.
    Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, shortening, milk, and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Add egg, beat until just blended.
  • 2In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended.
  • 3Form dough into 1-inch balls. To make reindeer-shaped cookies, pinch the bottom of the ball slightly to form a point, then gently flatten with the bottom of a glass (I wet the botttom so they would not stick). Space cookies about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 7 to 8 minutes, until set
  • 4Remove from oven and immediately (and gently) press two pretzels into the tops of the cookies for the reindeer's antlers. Press two mini brown M&Ms in for the eyes and one red M&M for the nose. I used different colors. Let cool before you move them.
