Reindeer Cookies

Santa Cookies by melissa joy cookiesSeriously, so many cookies this Christmas season, so little time. My brain is buzzing with ideas so fast that it’s making me a little crazy. There is so much inspiration out there, people! I ask myself why I didn’t start making some of this stuff sooner! I guess it’s hard for me to really get into the spirit of the holiday until after Thanksgiving happens….even though I will admit to putting up my Christmas tree the week before that. I LOVE my tree.

Mrs. Claus Cookie by Melissa JoyOne of those “must try” cookies was a version of Mrs. Claus. She has become quite a popular design amongst the cookie community this year. The first one I saw was posted by Sugared Hearts Bakery on her Facebook page. It was one of those moments that you slap your head and say, “Of course! Why didn’t I think of that?!”. Lots of peeps started making them and I knew I wanted to give Mrs. Claus a shot as well. She turned out okay, but now I think she more resembles Old Mother Hubbard.

I tried to keep it simple, like the Mister and Missus, though Rudolf maybe could use a little embellishment somewhere. I’ll let you know if I add something!
