holiday cookies with antlers


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer, cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, beating until smooth. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to butter mixture, beating until incorporated. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place on cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass jar. Bake about 12 minutes or until slightly golden brown. As soon as cookies are out of the oven, place a red M&M for the nose in each cookie. Place two mini chocolate chips (for the eyes) above the nose. Insert two pretzel pieces for the antlers.

Note: If the antlers won’t “stick,” use a little piped melted chocolate to hold the pretzels in place.
