It is no secret the Christmas is one of the best seasons at all, specially when you have little kids at home. My little girls and I have been having a great time decorating our little apartment and our tree. I already told you that E's favorite part of the tree is taking down the ornaments and putting them back in really weird ways. Let's say Santa's head sometimes is up side down, if he still had his head attach to the body.
This year I decided that I was old enough to Goggle the name of Santa's reindeers. Yes, I know, shame on me!! So I made these cookies thinking on them for my friends over at The Cookie Cutter Company.
Once again you are going to find my endless love for sanding sugar, pearls and dragees.
Dasher,Dancer,Prancer,Vixen,Comet, Cupid,Donner,Blitzen and Rudolf.
These reindeer cookies are so easy to bake and decorate, they are also very easy to eat, like in 2 bites! and they would make the perfect little gift for coworkers, neightbors , teachers or any last minute treat. Pack them in cello bags or cookie box ,tie them with ribbon and I bet you will make someone really happy.
To make these cookies you will need the following cookie cutters, so go to the website and get them because they are flying like crazy.:

Use a tip #3 with a flooding consistency to outline and flood the cookie,, let the cookie dry and then outline and pipe with white icing the top part of the sleigh.
