Reindeer Cookies

These adorable little Reindeer Cookies are not only cute, but EASY to make. Impress people by bringing them to your next holiday party!

Here we go, December! The month of crazy. I intend to simplify this month every single year, but it is SO. HARD. I'm learning that it's impossible to simplify completely, but it IS possible to simplify in little ways, like by making party food easy. These adorable Reindeer Cookies will make people think you slaved over them all day when they really only require 30 minutes of your precious holiday time. I don't always recommend refrigerated dough and store-bought frosting, but this month? Highly recommended.

If you have spare time on your hands, these Sugar Cookies are also super easy and delicious and this Chocolate Frosting is to die for!

Wishing peace and everything good for YOU this holiday season! Enjoy the cookies and your early-December Friday!
