Reindeer Sugar Cookies

I made these adorable reindeer cookies for a my mom’s group holiday party last year.  I loved how they were so simple to make…and they were a big hit with the kids.


  • Sugar cookie mix (or peanut butter, gingerbread)
  • Whatever other ingredients you need to bake your cookies (butter, egg, flour)
  • Red & black M&M’s
  • Chocolate dipped pretzels (like Flipz)…plain pretzels work just fine too.


Bake cookies as directed.

After removing cookies from the oven, immediately (slowly and gently) press two mini pretzels into the top part of the cookies for the reindeer’s antlers.
Allow cookies to cool a couple minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  After cookies are completely cooled, add a little dab of frosting onto two black M&M’s for the eyes and a red M&M for the nose.
