Tips & Tricks

Reindeer Cookies


If you prefer not to use food coloring, use sugar-free melted chocolate instead. Melt chocolate over a double broiler or in the microwave making sure the chocolate doesn’t burn. Add the melted chocolate to a piping bag and draw Rudolph’s face as you normally would. Let the glazing cool before serving.
