Reindeer Nose Cookies

Once again I was inspired by a cute and easy Christmas craft that I found on Pinterest, Reindeer Noses, from the blog, A Personal Touch.

The original noses were "made" with candy, but I thought it would be fun to make them instead with iced sugar cookies:) This is the easiest sugar cookies you will ever make!

Using my favorite sugar cookie/royal icing recipe, and a small (1-inch or so) round cookie cutter, I whipped these little noses up in no time at all.

I already have five jars packed up for the oldest munchkins (the other three are infants).  Now I just need to make some cute tags and send them off.

Each half-pint jar has 9 mini cookies: 1 red nose for Rudolph and 8 brown~1 each for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.

How cute are these for a sweet, little snack?

Your own munchkins will have fun nibbling on these noses:)

  1. That is GREAT. And I love that it has one Rudolph and 8 of the others. Especially because I think the sparkles taste just terrible (despite having a great texture), so you've got eight delicious ones to eat!! I definitely think I want to do this!

  5. These reindeer cookies are so adorable. They look so yummy too. Perfect for the little ones. I love the pictures. These cookies really do make a great gift of the holiday season. I'm sure my kids will really love them, they love watching all those cartoon christmas movies. Their favourite reindeers are rudolph and prancer. Thanks for sharing :)

  13. Sometimes the simple things in life are truly the best! I just adore that you packed these in gift jars and that each jar only has one red nose in it. The munchkins are going to love these.
