Reindeer Cookies

 Reindeer Cookies
This is one cookie recipe I especially enjoy making. My grandchildren love the graham cracker taste and the cute reindeer shape. I like that they're so quick and easy to assemble!
12 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 6 whole graham crackers, halved
  • 24 milk chocolate chips
  • 12 red-hot candies
  • 12 miniature pretzels

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine sugar, vanilla and enough cream to reach a
  • spreading consistency; cover and set aside. Using a serrated knife
  • and a gentle sawing motion, cut graham crackers diagonally in half,
  • forming two triangles.
  • Frost one triangle. With frosted triangle on bottom, overlap
  • triangles so the shortest side of unfrosted triangle runs along the
  • longest cut edge of frosted triangle; match smallest points of
  • crackers to form the nose. The remaining narrow points of both
  • crackers from the ears (see photo below).
  • Frost top cracker. Gently press on chocolate chip eyes and a red-hot
  • nose. Using the serrated knife and a gentle sawing motion, cut
  • pretzels in half to form antlers; press onto ears. Place on wire
  • rack until set. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: It is a good idea to have a few extra graham crackers and pretzels on hand because they break easily when cut.
