Shape prepared cookie dough into reindeer face shape and place on cookie sheet then bake as directed.
Bake cookies as directed then let cool on a wire rack while you gather decorating supplies.
Use mini chocolate chips for eyes, M&M's for noses, and dipped pretzels for ears on your reindeer. If needed, add chocolate icing to secure the decorations.
Instead of sugar cookie dough, try this recipe with peanut butter, snickerdoodle, pumpkin, red velvet, or chocolate cookies!
