Hi Everyone! Today I have a baking recipe that I made last night and they turned out really well, Reindeer Cookies! The cookie recipe is from Tanya Burr’s, ‘Tanya Bakes’ book.  The recipe is pretty straightforward and the cookies look so cute and festive.

* Ingredients*

250g Butter softened

150g Golden Caster Sugar

1 egg

1tsp Vanilla Essence

350g Plain Flour

1/2 teaspoon of Bicarbonate Soda

To decorate

Chocolate Covered Pretzels


Raisins ( for reindeers eyes)


Step 1:- Set the oven to 180 degrees and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper

Step 2:- If you have not managed to pick up chocolate pretzel’s, melt over a pan of boiling water some cooking chocolate and dip in the pretzels.  Allow to cool in the fridge.

Step 3:- Cream together the butter and sugar before adding the egg, Vanilla and gradually the flour and bicarbonate soda to create a dough.

Step 4:- Roll out the dough with a rolling pin and cut into heart shapes.  For the reindeer’s eyes, I thought it looked good to put two raisins in the dough.  Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes

Step 5:- Once cooled, and the chocolate pretzels have set in the fridge, place on top of the biscuits as antlers.  Add a red smartie and there you have your own tasty Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer biscuits!

I hope that you enjoyed this post, the biscuits are super cute and yummy and could make a lovely present for someone or as nibbles for a  Christmas party! Be sure to leave me a comment below and follow the blog to get daily #Blogmas content
