If you’ve been over to WalMart lately then you’ve seen it all decked out for the Holidays. One thing that I love is how in the cooking sections of our Super WalMart they have little sections set up in the middle where you can grab all your holiday baking essentials. From Great Value Cookie Dough to flour, baking chips and bars, oil, and even your decorations. They also have posted recipes to help you make something creative! Make sure you stop by these cool little baking islands while shopping at your local WalMart.
As you know I’m not the best baker in the world so yes I love me some cookie dough. Especially #GreatValue cookie dough because you get great quality at an awesome price. I almost went with the refrigerated cinnamon rolls dough, but decided against it. With this in mind we were looking for something fun and easy that the kids could help out with. Which is why we make cookies in the first place, right? It’s no fun if the whole family can’t join in! I found the following recipe for Frosted Reindeer Cookies over at the Pillsbury website. We will be making ours later in the week. Let’s just hope ours turn out as pretty!
- 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated sugar cookies or cookie dough
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup vanilla ready-to-spread frosting
- 64 small pretzel twists
- 64 semisweet chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
- 16 gumdrops, cut in half
- Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough; work flour into dough until well blended. Shape roll of cookie dough into triangle-shaped log. (If dough is too soft to cut, place in freezer 30 minutes.)
- With thin sharp knife, cut dough into 32 (1/4-inch-thick) triangular slices; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
- Frost cookies with frosting. Place 2 pretzel twists on each triangle near corners for antlers. Lightly press 2 chocolate chips into each cookie for eyes and 1 halved gumdrop for nose. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.
Now, you have to wait until next week to see how the recipe turned out and how our Great Value Part went! So check in then!
