You don’t know what to make for the little ones on Christmas? Eggnog with bourbon might be a little too strong for them? You cant to have some fun as you’re baking batches and batches of cookies for the holidays? Make red nosed reindeer cookies! They’re the cutest little cookies I’ve ever made and the amazing peanut butter taste in every bite makes them even better! I found the recipe online and followed it exactly. They’re easy, and fun, and gorgeous.

Ingredients

1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)

3/4 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 plus 1/2 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

45 red M&M candies

90 mini semisweet chocolate morsels

Pretzels, broken into 90 1-inch pieces

In a large bowl beat together butter, peanut butter, and sugars about medium speed about 2 minutes until they’re creamy.

Roll into 1-inch balls and place them on the baking tray. I suggest baking 12 at a time since it is easier to handle when you have to add all the nose, eyes, and antlers to the cookies as soon as you can while they’re still hot.

Bake for 8 minutes. For each cookie immediately place a red M&M as the nose, two mini chocolate morsels as eyes and two pretzel as antlers. Let them cool a little bit if not all the way before serving/storing them.
