Recipe for Red-Nosed Rudolph Cookies


Red-Nosed Rudolphs are quick and easy Christmas cookies that are lots of fun to make, especially for kids. While the basic sugar cookies must be rolled out, cutting is easy; no special cookie cutters are necessary since the cookies are simply cut into large rounds which are quartered.
””
Kids especially love cookies that resemble their favorite characters, and these easy cookies will be immediately recognized as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer by any child familiar with Christmas icons. They’ll love to help with the decorating, and they’ll especially love to eat them. Since they taste as good as they look, adults will like them too, and they’ll make a great addition to a holiday buffet or cookie tray.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies

Cookies:
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
10 tablespoons sugar, (1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
2 1/2 to 3 tablespoons milk

1 16 oz. can Chocolate frosting
60 miniature pretzels, broken in half
60 red M&M's candies
1 cup white frosting, homemade, from a can, or from a tube, thinned
1 3 oz. tube black decorating gel
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Cookies: Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Cut in the butter until it looks like cornmeal.

  4. In a separate container, whisk the vanilla, sugar, soda, egg, and milk until smooth.

  5. Gradually add to the flour mixture, stirring until a soft dough is formed (sometimes a little more milk is needed).

  6. Roll out on a floured board and cut into 12 4" circles.

  7. Cut each circle into quarters.

  8. Place each of the quarters on parchment-lined (or greased) baking sheets.

  9. Bake the cookies until set but not brown, about 6-8 minutes.

  10. Remove to cooling racks and cool thoroughly.

  11. Assembly: Frost each cookie with chocolate frosting.

  12. Press a pretzel half on each side of the rounded part of the cookies.

  13. Press a red M&M candy on the pointed part of each cookie.

  14. Place the white frosting into a decorating bag or plastic bag with a small hole cut from the corner.

  15. Pipe two small circles to resemble eyes.

  16. Let the white frosting eyes dry, then pipe a black dot in each of the white circles.

  17. When the frostings are set, stack the cookies carefully in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks; freeze for longer storage.
