Reindeer Christmas Cookies Ingredients


  • 6 C. flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 C. butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2/3 C. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C. sour cream
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Red M&M’s (I purchased a regular bag and sorted the colors)
  • Mini Nilla Wafer cookies
  • Candy eyes (I just buy these in bulk now, lol…we use them so much)
  • Mini pretzel twists


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the flour and baking powder and set aside.
In a large bowl combine the butter, sugar, egg, sour cream and vanilla. Slowly fold in the flour and baking powder mixture.
Scoop the cookie dough into 2″ balls and place about 2″ a part on a large baking sheet. Use a flat bottom glass to gently press (flatten) each dough ball to about 1/4″.
Bake 6-8 minutes.

Frosting Reindeer Cookies
Once the cookies have cooled, generously frost each one with chocolate frosting and set aside.
Give each reindeer 2 mini pretzel twists for antlers.

Reindeer Eyes
Give each reindeer 2 candy eyes.

Reindeer Nose
Place 1 Mini Nilla Wafer on the reindeer’s face.

Making Reindeer Cookies
And finally, place a small dab of chocolate frosting on the back of a red M&M and place on the Mini Nilla Wafer for the reindeer’s nose.
