Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Christmas! Merry Christmas Eve! Like many of you, I’ve been baking, shopping, and running around like a crazy Christmas elf to ensure things are perfect for the holiday.

We had a cookie swap at work a few weeks ago and I was pressed for time, so I baked reindeer sugar cookies. Festive, tasty, and quick to make. My kind of cookie.

Ingredients–Cookies
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

-In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.

-Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
