Made some also with Nutter Butter cookies to save time, using white morsels on warm cookie for whites of the eyes with mini-chocolate chips on top of them, a red m & m mini nose, mini chip mouth and since the white frosting showed (pretzel glue), I put some on front on the antlers, nose & cheek, as if snow-covered!

Made these for a preschool winterfest party. Big hit, people took pictures and no cookies were left. Had a little trouble shaping them. Roll dough into log and refrigerated, but when I went to cut the logs the dough did nto maintain its shape. Ended up hand rolling two small balls of dough and then flattened on the cookie sheet. Ended up looking for cute.
