Grandma got run over by a reindeer...

Don't you just love that song? It makes me smile whenever I hear it. Last night, Alex and I went to Christmas dinner at his aunt and uncles. His cousin (and now my cousin, too!), Meghan, is a fantastic baker. She and her daughter Sophia made these adorable little reindeer/Rudolph cookies. Aren't they just the cutest?

Tube of gingerbread dough
Maraschino cherries, sliced in half
Chocolate chips

Shape the roll of dough into a long triangle shape with your hands. Slice as you would normally, and then decorate with the other ingredients. Each pretzel is an ear, chocolate chips are eyes and a cherry half is Rudolph's nose! Bake according to directions.

Just keep the reindeer away from Grandma...
