Rudolph Peanut Butter Cookies

IMG_2162

Peanut butter cookies are a constant favorite in our house… holidays or not.

This year we decided to jazz them up a little bit and make them a little more fun.

We think they are cute enough to put out as an offering for Santa… what do you think?

Sprinkle with sugar and gently make an indentation slightly off the center of each cookie.
Bake 12-14 minutes.
Place an M&M in the indentation of each cookie.
Insert 2 mini chocolate chips (pointy side down) above the M&M to be the eyes.
Insert 2 pretzel pieces to be the antlers.
If the antlers won’t stick, place some chocolate chips in a sandwich bag and microwave 30 seconds and knead until soft. Clip the very tip of the corner and pipe onto cookie to act as glue.
