I like to think Rudolph would be proud of these cookies. I mean, who wouldn’t love a cookie in your honor. However, he may be upset at how very little time these actually take. It’s by far the easiest “baking” I did this weekend. But the main thing is that Leah absolutely loved putting together. It was messy and made me cringe a few time at the placement of antlers or eyes, but overall these turned out super cute.

I’ll let you in on a little secret….(I used premade sugar cookie dough) Shhhh, you can’t tell anyone. Here’s the deal, when you are just in it for the cute decorations then go with the shortcuts whenever you can. They will look adorable, will still taste delicious and you’ll get time back. Wins all around.

Loved making these and are a great kitchen activity to do with kiddos or anyone for that matter. Add it to your baking lists this year!

Instructions

  1. Tip for getting your sugar cookies into perfect circles. After you pull them out of the oven, let them cool about 5 minutes. Then take the top of a glass in a size of your choosing and push the cup opening into the sugar cookie to cut out the perfect circle.
  2. Once cookies are cooled, frost your cookies with a layer of chocolate frosting.
  3. Once frosted, assemble the cookies. Pretzels for antlets, Mini Nilla Wafer for snout, edible eyeballs. Take a dab of frosting and place on the middle of the Nilla wafer then attach the m&m to it for Rudolph’s nose.
  4. Let sit and then you can enjoy! Happy Reindeer Making!

  1. Hi Laura, this is a stupid question, I don’t understand about making the size after they are baked? Don’t you bake them after the size is made

    1. Not stupid at all! It’s just a weird tip to be able to get your sugar cookies into perfect circles if they spread or are slightly oval. So if you take a glass and place the open end around the cookie after they are out of the oven and still warm, then you can cut off the excess and make a perfect circle. Which is great for these cookies. Premade sugar cookie dough is better at staying in perfect circles so you may not need to do it. Let me know if that makes any sense! 🙂
