Just shape the cookie dough into a triangular log, and slice for fun reindeer cookies ready in a flash.

Ingredients

1
roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
1
cup vanilla creamy ready-to-spread frosting (from 1-lb container)
64
small pretzel twists
64
semisweet chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
16
gumdrops, cut in half

Steps

  • 1 In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Reshape into triangle-shaped log. If too soft to cut into slices, refrigerate up to 30 minutes.
  • 2 Heat oven to 350°F. With thin sharp knife, cut dough into 32 (1/4-inch) triangular slices. On ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 2 inches apart.
  • 3 Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4 Frost cookies with frosting. Place 2 pretzel twists on each triangle near corners for antlers. Lightly press 2 chocolate chips into each cookie for eyes and 1 halved gumdrop for nose. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.
