There's Still Time

There's still time to bake these adorable and tasty treats for Santa's visit tomorrow night. I made them with my niece and nephew yesterday to get us further into the Christmas spirit, if that's possible (or necessary) when you're hanging out with a 9 and 12 year-old.

Anyway, you could certainly make the batter from scratch but I just bought a tube of peanut butter cookie dough at the grocery store. It was easy and fast (operative word) to simply slice and shape our little reindeers. You basically just kind of smush in the sides of the cookie to create the elongated reindeer face. Then we baked them in the oven, following the cooking instructions provided, and pulled them out a minute or two early so we could get them properly adorned for the holidays. The red nose was an M&M and the eyes were mini chocolate chips. I loved the "antlers" made from chocolate covered pretzels. Aren't they just the cutest?

The last few cookies were antlerless, though, because my newphew ate a bunch while we were waiting for the cookies to bake. I'm sure Santa will understand. . . .

Wishing all y'all a sweet and merry Christmas!
