Day 11: Reindeer Noses in a Jar

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.IMG_4095 (1)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.

    1. I am glad you like the Reindeer Noses idea, they were a hit at work 🙂 I got my twine at IKEA that was last year’s color – this year I bought red and white 🙂
