Reindeer Cookies

I made these fun and easy peanut butter reindeer cookies this past weekend and they are perfect for any holiday gathering or cookie exchange! 

1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter
3 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. vanilla 
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cups flour
Mini M&Ms
Regular M&Ms
Chocolate covered pretzels (or regular pretzels)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the shortening, peanut butter, milk, brown sugar, and vanilla on medium speed. Add egg and mix until blended. Mix flour, salt, and baking soda separately and then add to other mixture slowly mixing.
Make into one inch balls and place on greased baking sheet. Pinch the bottom of the ball and then flatten it with the palm of your hand - this will make the reindeer head shape. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Take them out of the oven and immediately add M&Ms and Pretzels - be careful, you will need to do it gently. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing.
