Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips (96 chips)
  • 1 tablespoon candies (48 candies)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F (if using dark or nonstick cookie sheet, heat oven to 350°F). In large bowl, beat peanut butter, butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Stir in flour and baking powder.

    For each cookie, shape 1-inch ball of dough into triangle shape about 1 1/2 inches long. On ungreased cookie sheet, place 2 pretzel twists about 1 inch apart to look like antlers; press top of dough triangle gently into pretzels. Repeat with remaining dough and pretzels.
  • 3
    Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Immediately press 2 chocolate chips for eyes and 1 cinnamon candy for nose onto each cookie. Let stand 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • A plateful of Rudolphs on a cheery red plate makes a welcome gift from the kids.
