25 Days of Cookies: Day 11 Peanut Butter Reindeer

Again I have fallen prey to the cute-ems... you know. They are just so cute you gotta make em. These are easy, require no talent and actually turn out adorable.

What you need:
24 mini pretzels
12 red M&Ms
24 brown M&Ms
1 cup of peanut butter (not the natural or organic stuff, we need full on Americana in all its processed glory)
1 cup of sugar
1 egg

What you do:
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Mix the peanut butter, egg, and sugar in a bowl.
3. Dollop out teaspoon sized semi circles into your hand. Make little ovals rolling them in your palm and place on to a parchment lined baking sheet. Once on the sheet, flatten them a little with the palm of your hand.
4. Bake for 10 minutes they will be soft
5. While still warm, press two mini pretzels into the top of the cookies as ears. Add the eyes and the little red nose. You have to work quickly so it helps if you do it with a friend.
6. Allow to cool... and enjoy with a nice glass of milk

So... adorable!

Happy Christmas! As always, much love, many blessings and happy baking.
