Reindeer Peanut Butter Cookies

Reindeer Peanut Butter Cookies

3/4 cups peanut butter

1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup shortening

3 tbs milk

1 egg

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

Chocolate covered pretzels

Mini brown M&Ms

Regular sized red M&Ms

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, shortening, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed. Add egg and beat until just blended. In another bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mix at low speed. Form 2″ ball of dough and place on greased cookie sheets. Pinch the bottom slightly to make a point. Flatten by hand. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes until just turning brown. Remove and immediately press 2 pretzel antlers at the tops of the cookies. Press 2 mini M&Ms for the eyes, and one red M&M for the nose. Allow to cool before transferring off of sheet, as the pretzels need to set.
