Reindeer Cookies

Reindeer Cookies
Christmas Sweet Treat

  • 1 (16.5-oz.) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 36 pretzel twists
  • 36 semisweet chocolate mini morsels
  • 18 red cinnamon candies or red M&Ms
Freeze dough 15 minutes. Roll dough to a 1/4-inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut dough with a 3-inch round cutter, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using thumb and forefinger, pinch opposite sides of each slice about two-thirds of the way down to shape face.

Break curved sides away from center of each pretzel twist to form antlers. Press bottom of 1 set of antlers on each side at top of each reindeer face.

Bake at 350° according to package directions or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; press in 2 chocolate mini morsels for eyes and 1 red cinnamon candy for nose. Let cool 1 minute on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool 20 minutes or until completely cool.
