Welcome to Day 11 of my 12 Days of Christmas
If you are doing a cookie exchange or need to do some baking for your child’s class Christmas party, these Reindeer Noses in a Mason Jar are sure to delight. I think these are adorable and so much FUN!
I first saw this idea on the blog From Rookie to a Rock Star. It was so unique, I knew I wanted to give it a try. The recipe I used for the cookies can be found here. The icing I used was a simple powdered sugar icing, that recipe can be found here.Once all my cookies were baked (I added 9 cookies in each jar – one for each reindeer plus Rudolph). When I made the icing I tinted a very small amount of it RED in a separate bowl. You will need to frost one red cookie per number of jars you decide to make.
The rest of the cookies were frosted with the remaining icing.
I layered 8 cookies per jar and added one red frosted cookie down one side of the jar to ensure you could see it.
I printed off the tags for the top of the mason jars. Taped them in place and finished off the jars with a bit of bakers twine.
Reindeer noses are a fun sign of the season that make kids of all ages smile and feel giddy.
I think they are A Wandaful Thing!
Here is my recap of what I have done for the last 10 days…
