- 18-ounce package refrigerated peanut butter or sugar cookie dough
- 48 small pretzel twists or thin pretzel sticks
- 48 brown M&M candies
- 24 red M&M candies
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Place the cookie dough in the freezer for 15 minutes, or until firm.
Cut the dough into 24 slices and place the slices 2 inches apart on large, ungreased cookie sheets.
Pinch in each side to form an hourglass shape. Position 2 pretzels on top of each slice to form antlers. Create eyes with the brown M&M candies, and noses with the red M&M candies.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Remove to a rack to cool completely.
