12 Days of Cookies: Day 4

Between school and ballet Iz and I are on-the-go Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday so, on Thursdays, we tend to hunker down and stay home (except last week when Auntie D and I went shopping - BY OURSELVES - and out to lunch!) and we usually spend the day in our jammies. This morning we we got up it was 15 degrees out! Winter has definitely hit here in Western Maine and it is C.O.L.D. So, with a whole day at home AND the advantages of running the oven for hours on end (more heat please!) I decided today was as good a day as any to make TWO kinds of cookies :)

Nana's Ice Box Cookies
These are super simple to make and actually quite a plain cookie in the grand scheme of cookies but, when made correctly (the key is to slice them VERY VERY THIN!) they are sooooooo good! And, as far as I'm concerned, the only way to eat them is like potato chips - grab a handful and have at it :) That mentality is made very easy by the fact that one batch makes about 5 to 6 DOZEN cookies!

Reindeer Cookies
Again, VERY simple - peanut butter cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate chips, red m&m's & white frosting. Grab YOUR best helper (and if you don't have one, you can borrow mine!) and HAVE FUN!

So cute!
I love how this Rudolph looks a little cross-eyed - it's adorable :)
