Ingredients

  • REINDEER PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

  • 1/2

    cup shortening

  • 1/2

    cup butter (softened)

  • 1

    cup peanut butter

  • 1

    cup light brown sugar (packed)

  • 1 1/2

    cups sugar (divided)

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1/4

    cup whole milk

  • 3 1/2

    cups flour

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    teaspoons baking soda

  • 1

    bag of chocolate drop candies

  • 1

    bag chocolate covered pretzels (cut in half)

  • candy eyes

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray. In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl add the shortening, butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and 1 cup of sugar and cream together until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add 1 egg at a time until combined then add in the milk. Add the vanilla and mix to combine. In a separate bowl, add the flour, salt and baking soda and whisk until combined. Add in stages to the creamed mixture until combined. Do not over mix. Using a small ice cream scoop or a 1-ounce cookie scoop, form the dough into balls. Place the remaining sugar on a plate and roll the balls of dough into the white sugar. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven to a baking rack and press a chocolate drop candy in the center and each half of the pretzel into the top for reindeer antlers. Press in the eyes. Allow to cool and serve! Tip: Allow the cookies to cool for 30 seconds-1 minute before placing the chocolate drops in the center to avoid melting the chocolate drops.
