Slice 'n Bake Rudolph Cookies
Get started!



1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 teaspoon maple flavoring

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda


48 large pretzel twists, broken in half

96 brown candy-coated milk chocolate pieces  

16 small red spice gumdrops, sliced 1/4-inch thick (3 slices per gumdrop)

 *Substitute chocolate chips, pressing into cookies immediately after baking.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar, butter and maple flavoring in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough in half. Roll each half into 6-inch log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Cut 1 log at a time, keeping remaining log refrigerated, into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place each slice onto ungreased cookie sheet; pinch 1 end of slice to form triangle-shape. Press 2 pretzel pieces into dough on wide end for antlers, 2 chocolate pieces for eyes and 1 gumdrop piece for nose.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake 8-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Store between sheets of waxed paper in loosely covered container.

Tip #1

- Be sure dough is well chilled so cookies retain their shape while baking.

Tip #2

- This dough can be made ahead and stored in the freezer up to 1 month. Place wrapped logs in resealable freezer bag. Let dough thaw in refrigerator.
