Here we are getting close to crunch time for Christmas which means I best get out of my cuddle bed and show Bailie how to make Christmas cookies! I will be the master baking chef as always and she can be my elf assistant. This year we are going to make what we call, reindeer biscuits. They really have nothing to do with reindeer, but they are for Christmas and they have oats which reindeer like to eat, thus their name.
Next I mixed all the ingredients together in the order the recipe stated, starting with the dry ingredients. I had to take a good look to make sure that the dough formed a ball so it would be suitable for rolling out. Bailie remained determined to get the peanut butter jar open – a one track puppy mind!
Rolling out the dough is the hard part as my elf wanted to just eat it as is. She still hasn’t learned to wait for the finished, baked product. Hopefully she will get some patience as she gets older. Baking is not an on demand activity…puppies these days want everything like yesterday!
Using our favorite Christmas shapes we cut out the tasty cookies one after another. You can make them any size you want. We went mostly with mid-sized shapes. Mom said we shouldn’t use our squirrel or wabbit cookie cutters since they aren’t Christmasy, bummer!
And now for the moment we have been drooling about…the taste test, and yes, they passed! These are definite winners and something you could leave out for Santa’s reindeer on Christmas Eve. We figure Santa really doesn’t need to eat, he is pretty well rounded but those reindeer are in top shape and working hard, so why not reward them?

Don’t just sit there…send your mom to the store to get you the ingredients and start baking. This batch will be gone in no time, so we will have to make some more!
