For the Christmas decorations

  • 24 pretzels broken into antler pieces

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the peanut butter, egg and vanilla. Stir in the flour, salt and baking soda. Roll into 36, approximately 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in granulated sugar.
  • Bake at 375 F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Remove from the oven and immediately press an unwrapped Hershey Kiss into the center of each cookie. If making reindeer cookies, press the broken pretzel pieces into the cookies for antlers as well. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
