These simple cookies are a hit. Fun to make…fun to eat. I like that they are made with honey and whole wheat. And they really don’t take much time at all.
1 /2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour
red hot candies
Stir together butter, peanut butter and honey. Add egg, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla. Mix in flour. Chill dough for about an hour.
Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a well floured surface. Cut circles using a small drinking glass. Place on cookie sheet. Use fingers to squeeze the circles in the middle.
Place two pretzels at the top for antlers, two chocolate chips on for eyes and one red hot candy for a nose.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow reindeer to cool 2-3 minutes before removing from cookie sheet.

I just had to show you Malachi’s attempt at a reindeer.
He sure did have fun helping!
