Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies

Ah these came out so cute i saw them on the Betty Crocker website looking through the holiday cookie section they always have the best ideas! They are really easy to make when i was making them i figured out a way to kind of shape the face with my thumbs out of the cookie ball. 

1/2 cup natural PB 
1/2 cup butter
1/2 sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1 egg
1 1/3 all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pretzel twists
chocolate chips (i used dark chocolate)
candies for nose (i used icing)

Preheat oven to 350 in large bowl, beat PB,butter,sugar and brown sugar with mixer until fluffy. Beat in egg. Stir in flour and baking powder.

For each cookie shape 1 inch ball of dough into a triangle shape on cookie sheet. Push two pretzels into cookie to look like antlers. Bake for 5 to 10 mins  or until browned on the edges. Immediately press 2 chocolate chips for eyes and a candy nose or icing nose like i did. let stand for 2 mins to cool.

  1. Looks delicious. Would love for you to share this with us over at

  2. How adorable! I would probably use red smarties (like M&Ms) for the noses, as my icing skills are less than perfect.

  3. Cute cookies! I love the Christmas-theme. I am thinking of dried cherry bits to use as nose, to make my version, the Rudolph variety...Thanks for the great idea! ;)

  4. Those are super cute! I love the little pretzel antlers. :)

  5. thank you so much for sharing this, they came out so great and where so popular at work! i used red and green m and ms for the noses. will make again!
