Day 276 - Day 5 of the 12 Days of Cookies - Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies

I saw these cookies on the internet when I Googled “Christmas Cookies” and I knew I just had to make them.

They are just WAY too cute!!

Ingredients

  • If I had little kid, they’d be all over them, but my teenagers liked them, too.
  • I used a different peanut butter cookie recipe and other things, but they came out just as cute.
  • I’m sure the kids in your life will love these, too!
  • This peanut butter cookie recipe is one that we like the best here at 365 and it came from my New Doubleday Cookbook, p.843; authors, Jean Anderson and Elaine Hanna; publisher, Doubleday, a division of Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc., an imprint of Random house, Inc.; ISBN 0-385-19577-X.
