♥Rudolph 'n friends reindeer cookies♥



No time? Need to keep little hands busy? These little cutie pies will take care of both - and MORE. My grandsons will be here for a sleepover soon and guess what we're gonna do☺ BUT, you don't have to be a child to make these - all you have to be is a child at ♥.

Ingredients

* 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
* 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 cup vanilla ready-to-spread frosting
* 64 small pretzel twists
* 64 semisweet chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
* 16 gumdrops, cut in half

Instructions

1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough; work flour into dough until well blended. Shape roll of cookie dough into triangle-shaped log. (If dough is too soft to cut, place in freezer 30 minutes.)

2. With thin sharp knife, cut dough into 32 (1/4-inch-thick) triangular slices; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

4. Frost cookies with frosting. Place 2 pretzel twists on each triangle near corners for antlers. Lightly press 2 chocolate chips into each cookie for eyes and 1 halved gumdrop for nose. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.

Oh Mimi! I have been away for so long since I had to move in the end of October. It has not been an easy move, and sentimental things have been lost, and broken.. And all the while, I'm trying to hold on to my Christmas spirit, because I DO LOVE the holidays so MUCH! I love these cookies, and your White Christmas music!!!.. You helped put a smile on my face and some Christmas cheer in my heart this morning! I would LOVE to add these reindeer cookies to the assortment I will soon be baking! Thank you! ~tina
