I have made these cookies for many years from my Mr. Food Christmas Cookbook. My son always loved to take them when he had to bring something to a xmas party or gathering. All the kids loved them.

Have made several times and always a hit with kids and adults. I usually just make the face round and don't pinch in the center. They are still adorable looking reindeer

I know I pinched hard enough in the center and they still came out round. Not very reindeer shaped :(

Going to make these tonight with my kid she is so exicted about it

mr food,my grandson is 5 years old and loves sweets,but he is allergic to eggs and peanuts,do you have a good cake or/and cookie recipe that does not have eggs or peanuts in them?.... if you do please send it to thank you.

Have to get to the store so i can make these and surprise my family,they look great for the kid;s (big and small )

Can't wait to make these with my niece and nephew for Christmas! They love to bake for the holidays and these look like FUN!

Looks good and sooooooo easy. Thank You
