Reindeer Chocolate Sugar Cookies
all-purpose flour + extra for rolling
snapped in half
Black and red decorating frosting
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and beat some more.
Next add all of the dry ingredients into the mix: flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt.
Mix and knead until a cookie dough forms.
Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for one hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Once the chilling time is up, remove the cookie dough from the fridge.
Sprinkle a smooth surface with flour. Add flour on a rolling pin as well.
Roll out the cookie dough so that it’s about ¼ of an inch in size.
Use a round cookie cutter, about 2 inches in diameter, to cut out 12-15 cookies.
Press 2 pretzel halves on the top of each cookie - these will act as the reindeer’s antlers.
Bake for 7 to 9 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
With a round piping tip, pipe out a red nose and two black dots (for eyes) on the reindeer.
