I grew up with these adorable (and ridic tasty) cookies my entire life during Christmastime. My Mom always went above and beyond to try and think of creative and fun treats for each holiday and this was no exception. Our family (of two) decided to make these this year and it was so much fun.
I'm glad I gave him a second chance because these came out just perfect. I am smiling thinking of him reading this...because I'm actually the hazard in the kitchen. I baked him a cake a couple weeks ago for his birthday and it was a DEEEESAAASSSSTTTERRR. We're still finding butter and flour in the oddest of places.
Don't these look JUST like Rudolph Noses?
These are pillowy soft and the icing is almost fudge like. I've already eaten THREE today. Good gracious get these suckers out of here.
