Sending Some Ho Ho Ho

20131210-073551.jpgWhat is the first thing these guys ask for every Christmas season?

20131210-073649.jpgReindeer cookies!

20131210-073728.jpgHere is the super easy recipe for these delicious cookies. You will need Refrigerated Peanut Butter Cookie Dough in the tube, small pretzels, M&Ms, (and I usually use chocolate chips, but I didn’t have them, so I didn’t use them! So there.)

20131210-074210.jpgAfter slicing the dough into 1/4inch-1/2 inch circles, my assistant pinches the bottom to form the reindeer chin.

20131210-074358.jpgI guess you could turn them into skulls for Halloween or a snowman, if you look at it upside down or even light bulbs for Thomas Edison Day! (Is there such a day? Oh well….)

20131210-074614.jpgNow add pretzels for the antlers.

20131210-074715.jpgDon’t worry about if the pretzels are broken. I think it gives the reindeer some character.

20131210-074821.jpgTime to give these sweet guys some eyes and a nose. I usually use chocolate chips, turned upside down-flat side up, for the eyes. But as you know I don’t have any, so…..We are using the green candies for the eyes and red for the nose.

20131210-075035.jpgOne issue I have to deal with is the number of red M&Ms that are left in my hand. What’s a girl to do?

20131210-075248.jpgSam is hoping one will jump off the tray. A few weeks ago, I made some cookies and while they were cooling on the rack, I went to vacuum. When I walked back into the kitchen, there was an empty cooling rack on the floor! Sam innocently sat there wagging her tail. Needless to say, she got kicked outside. Anyway…bake the cookies for 10 min at 350 degrees.

20131210-075719.jpg“Psst….Do You Hear What I hear?”

20131210-075835.jpg“Ah shucks…I think I’m sweet on you.”

20131210-080022.jpg“Dear Santa- I want a dolly and he wants a truck.”

20131210-080150.jpg“With bows in my hair, I’m ready for the party!”

20131210-080233.jpg“Wrinkles don’t mean I’m just old. These are lines of living!”

20131210-080355.jpgSo, see that handsome kid in uniform there on the left? Well, he’s starting his college exams this week. What would help him study and succeed during this stressful time? Reindeer Cookies!!! A box has been packed and shipped to Charleston. Enjoy, Sweet boy!
