 Easy Reindeer Cookies
These cookies were easy to make using a boxed cookie mix. My son, Eric, enjoyed creating the faces with pretzels, chocolate chips and red-hots.—Gretchen Vandenberghe, Toledo, Ohio
15 ServingsPrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min.


  • 1 package (17-1/2 ounces) peanut butter cookie mix
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 60 miniature pretzels
  • 60 semisweet chocolate chips
  • 30 red-hot candies


  • In a large bowl, beat the cookie mix, oil and egg until well
  • combined. Shape into a 7-1/2-in. roll; wrap in plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour. Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices.
  • Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using thumb and
  • forefinger, make a slight indentation one-third of the way down the
  • sides of each slice. Press in pretzels for antlers, chocolate chips
  • for eyes and a red-hot for the nose.
  • Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until light brown. Remove to
  • wire racks to cool. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
