Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies


YAY! I am almost done with my ornament orders! I just wanted to get off of my feet for a minute and share with you the cookies I baked with the kids this morning.

They are just regular peanut butter cookies, some of which we decorated up a bit.

Peanut Butter Cookies
½ cup shortening
1 cup peanut butter
½ cup brown sugar
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp. milk
¾ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
1 ¼ cups flour
Cream shortening, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla at medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg. Add dry ingredients. Roll into a ball. Place on a cookie sheet and flatten with a fork dipped in flour. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes- DO NOT OVERBAKE or else they will be really dry.
If you want to make these into reindeer like we did, just put a red m&m on for the nose, two chocolate chips for the eyes, and two pretzels for the antlers (really smash those in god or they will fall off when baking or shortly thereafter!)
