Reindeer Cookies

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

Makes

1 dozen

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!

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
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.
