My kids are so picky when it comes to Christmas desserts. That vintage English trifle that gets served up every year basically doesn’t stand a chance. Nor do the mincemeat pies, or Christmas pudding.

Generally they will go for butter cookies, gingerbread and the chocolate fudge my sister always makes.

If your kids are super picky too, here is another fun and delicious option for your cookie tray.

These chocolate sugar cookies are delectable on their own but they become something truly special once decorated as Rudolph.

Rudolph Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Yields: 12-15 cookies

Ingredients:

¼ cup unsalted butter, softened

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 large egg, room temperature

1 cups all-purpose flour + extra for rolling

2 tbsp cocoa powder

½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

12-15 hard pretzels, snapped in half

Black and red decorating frosting

 

Directions:

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and beat some more.

Next add all of the dry ingredients into the mix: flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt.

Mix and knead until a cookie dough forms.

Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for one hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Once the chilling time is up, remove the cookie dough from the fridge.

Sprinkle a smooth surface with flour. Add flour on a rolling pin as well.

Roll out the cookie dough so that it’s about ¼ of an inch in size.

 

 

Use a round cookie cutter, about 2 inches in diameter, to cut out 12-15 cookies.

Press 2 pretzel halves on the top of each cookie – these will act as the reindeer’s antlers.

Bake for 7 to 9 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

 

 

With a round piping tip, pipe out a red nose and two black dots (for eyes) on the reindeer.
