These are, without a doubt, always the cutest Christmas cookies on the holiday cookie platter! Santa won't be able to resist these on Christmas Eve and neither will your little (and big) elves!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18-ounce) package refrigerated peanut butter or sugar cookie dough
  • 48 small pretzel twists
  • 48 brown M&M's candies
  • 24 red M&M's candies
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cookie dough in freezer for 15 minutes, or until firm.
  2. Cut dough into 24 slices and place slices 2 inches apart on large ungreased cookie sheets. Pinch in each side to form an hourglass shape.
  3. Position 2 pretzels at top of each slice to form antlers then create eyes with brown candies and noses with red candies.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Have made several times and always a hit with kids and adults. I usually just make the face round and don't pinch in the center. They are still adorable looking reindeer

I know I pinched hard enough in the center and they still came out round. Not very reindeer shaped :(

Going to make these tonight with my kid she is so exicted about it

mr food,my grandson is 5 years old and loves sweets,but he is allergic to eggs and peanuts,do you have a good cake or/and cookie recipe that does not have eggs or peanuts in them?.... if you do please send it to thank you.

Have to get to the store so i can make these and surprise my family,they look great for the kid;s (big and small )

Can't wait to make these with my niece and nephew for Christmas! They love to bake for the holidays and these look like FUN!

Looks good and sooooooo easy. Thank You
