As soon as I laid eyes on those adorable little antlers, that bright red nose, and those sweet chocolate-brown eyes, I knew I
wanted needed to make these peanut butter Rudolph cookies immediately. They were seriously almost too cute to eat! Almost. No matter how cute, I’m not going to pass up anything that combines two of my favorite things: peanut butter and chocolate. Not to mention my friend Erin won a Christmas cookie contest with these bad boys?! Cutest. Cookies. EVER.
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
3 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
chocolate covered mini pretzels
1. Preheat the oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, peanut butter, shortening, milk, and vanilla; beat at medium speed until well blended.
5. Create 1-inch dough balls spaced about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Gently flatten the dough ball with your palm and pinch the bottom into a point. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until just beginning to brown.
