Making Reindeer Cookies on a Snow Day
We just had our first snow day of the season and regardless of how much I dislike winter, a snow day is always welcomed. There is nothing better than staying home in our pajamas all day, breaking out the snow boots and sleds and doing nothing but relaxing! Especially this time of the year with Christmas right around the corner!
It was the perfect day to make some Christmas cookies, like these Reindeer Cookies! You may also know them as Monster Cookies.
Also known as Monster Cookies, these chewy candy cookies are perfect for Christmas!
