Palma, those cookies are SO cute! My grandsons would love them.

Sheena:

As I hit post I saw the typo - should read THE bloodshot not TO bloodshot!
My latte is sitting in front of me - clearly I need to drink it before posting!

Kate:

This is a great idea! Thanks Palma,I will use this with my munchkins for sure.

Too cute! I"m going to send this recipe to my DIL for the grandgirls to amke!

Jane:

Palma, how fun!! Casey will have fun making this with his little friend Hannah---yes, he as a girl in every port (so to speak.)

What a great idea! They are soooo cute!!! I wish I saw this before planning our reindeer cooking activity for my class for this year (we make reindeer pancakes with marachino cherry noses). I am going to print this and save it for next year :)

I got confused when the deer were upside down and thought you were cooking chickens! Anyway, they are cute right side up. Kind of psychedelic eyes ... woooo.

Palma, just wanted to let you know that this morning, I made these cookies with my nephews (ages 6 and 7) and it was so much fun! They don't look quite as nice as yours (some of them look like Picasso made them) but the boys had a blast doing it (and so did I).

Happy Holidays and thanks!
