Reindeer Cookies

Christmas is coming! So it’s time to loosen the (already loosened) belt and get ready for the annual eating fest.

Reindeer Cookies

250g Peanut Butter

200g Castor sugar

1 egg

To kick start the eating frenzy, here are some totally adorable reindeer cookies. The recipe is super simple – so simple that I made these with my toddler. The cookie itself is a soft peanut butter cookie. Some of them are also stuffed with Nutella – because tis the season to eat chocolate. I chilled small blobs of Nutella in the freezer for 5-10 minutes so that it was easier to mold.

 

I followed this soft peanut butter cookie recipe. Only 3 ingredients – winner! I added in 1/2 cup of almond flour as I wanted it to have a bit more body. I’m sure using self raising flour would have the same effect. Once Boo had mixed it all up I placed it in the fridge for 20 minutes while we cleaned down.

 

 

They baked for 10 mins at 180c. You need to leave them to cool for a few minutes before you try to move them as they are soft when they are fresh out of the oven. Once they have cooled a little add antlers – I used curly wurly squirlies or you could use chocolate covered pretzels. We used a glace cherry for the nose. As I was making these with my toddler we left off fiddly eyes, but you could easily use white chocolate buttons to make eyes – just make sure the cookies have cooled first.
