Looking to make some easy reindeer cookies for Christmas? This is the tutorial for you. No baking is required and the kids can help (or even make themselves).
They are perfect for the whole family and can be enjoyed throughout the holidays. They are super fun to look at and even better to eat.
Christmas baking. There is nothing quite like it is there.
It doesn’t matter what Christmas party you go to, there are always some adorable little snacks staring at you. Then that thought crosses your mind…..”who has the time to make all these fiddly treats?!”
Whilst you enjoy eating these tiny morsels, you know that you are not ever going to make them.
But it always happens. You ask the host for the recipe because you have every intention under the sun that THIS year will be the year that you will be creative at Christmas. Then reality kicks in and that recipe goes to the back of the cupboard.
It really doesn’t have to be this way, and the beauty of these reindeer cookies is that you can turn that intention into the reality.
Sounds pretty good right?
Easy School Bake Sale Contribution For The Win
It doesn’t matter how prepared you think you are, Christmas always appears out of nowhere. And then it happens, the letter from school asking for your contribution to the end of year bake sale.
I picked up my letter from my daughter’s pre-school this week. It’s not really a contribution thing, it’s an expectation thing. You have a child at the preschool…you provide something for the bake sale.
BUT, it also has to be in individual pieces that can be sold for 50 cents each.
Well, as you know I am not a baker. The mere thought of creating some treats for other people to enjoy stresses me out, let alone being good enough to sell!
They can be made in minutes and the kids are going to absolutely love eating them.
How good will it feel to see your bake sale contributions disappearing from the tables. That’s exactly what will happen with these little reindeer cookies.
Trust me when I say they are easy to make.
6 steps and you are done, plus there is no baking required. Does that cheat for a contribution to a bake sale??? Nah!
The Easiest Reindeer Cookies You Will Find

We have all seen those beautifully decorated sugar cookies made from a reindeer cookie cutter.
Yes they are great, but if you are a mom like me who really doesn’t have the time (or the skill) to spend hours in the kitchen, then let me tell you that these reindeer cookies are just as good (if not better!).
Of course, you could also make your own cookies from scratch if you wish, but there is no shame at all in opening a packet of plain biscuits!
Yes, we are at it again, making life super simple. I used Arnott’s milk Arrowroot biscuits, but you can really use any plain biscuit provided that it is an oval shape.
However if you really really do want to make your own sugar cookies, try out this easy recipe.
