Remember last week when I shared with you guy that awesome Frosted Reindeer Cookie Recipe? Well we had a fun family baking party to create the cookies ourselves! Everyone had a turn helping out. The cookies turned out great! PLus, they were so easy that we decided we are going to make more on Christmas Eve so we can leave some out for Santa! I know he will enjoy these as much as we did! Check out our fun pictures below:

The best thing about these cookies besides how easy they were to make was that by shopping at WalMart and using Great Value products they were very inexpensive to make! I loved using the Great Value cookie dough. Super soft, and had a great taste to it. Which as I’ve been saying, you don’t have to suffer quality or taste for price with the Great Value brand. Once again the recipe is below:

Ingredients:

  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated sugar cookies or cookie dough
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup vanilla ready-to-spread frosting
  • 64 small pretzel twists
  • 64 semisweet chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
  • 16 gumdrops, cut in half( We substituted Hershey’s candy)

Instructions:

  • Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough; work flour into dough until well blended. Shape roll of cookie dough into triangle-shaped log. (If dough is too soft to cut, place in freezer 30 minutes.)
  • With thin sharp knife, cut dough into 32 (1/4-inch-thick) triangular slices; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • Frost cookies with frosting. Place 2 pretzel twists on each triangle near corners for antlers. Lightly press 2 chocolate chips into each cookie for eyes and 1 halved gumdrop for nose. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.

If you make these I’d love to see pics! Leave a link and I’ll head over and check them out!
