Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheet). In medium bowl, mix cookies as directed on package, using oil, water and egg.
  • 2 Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls 2 inches apart. Dip bottom of drinking glass in sugar; press each ball until about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 3 Pinch bottom edge of each cookie to form a longer point. At point of each cookie, place 1 chocolate chip for nose; press down slightly. Place 2 chocolate chips on each cookie for eyes; press down slightly. With small sharp knife, cut star points from Christmas pretzels to form 48 small V-shaped pretzels (if using pretzel sticks, cut into quarters). Press 2 pretzel pieces into top of each cookie for antlers.
  • 4 Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

These are easy cookies for kids to help with. Let them each create their own herd of reindeer.

You can use small candies instead of chocolate chips to decorate the cookies. Do a test bake to see if they hold up to baking temperature. If not, just attach them to the baked cookies with a little melted chocolate.
