Christmas Reindeer Cookies!

Prep Time:

15 mins

Cook Time:

10 mins


  • 1/2 cup (125g) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (80g) brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg, yolk only
  • 1/2 cup golden syrup
  • 2 1/2 cups (375g) plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • black writing icing (or chocolate icing)
  • red M&M’s MINIS


Step 1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a tray with baking paper and set aside. Beat butter and brown sugar together using an electric beater, stand mixer or food processor. Add egg yolk and golden syrup and mix until combined. Add flour, ginger, mixed spice and bicarb soda and combine.

Step 2. Place onto a piece of baking paper and then cover with another piece of baking paper – using a rolling pin, roll out the dough until 5mm thick and cut out shapes (kids can help here). Re-roll as needed, but keep using the baking paper.

Step 3. Move the cut shapes over to greased baking trays with a spatula/egg flip and bake for 8-10 minutes. Once baked, let cool for 10 minutes on the tray and then transfer to cooling rack.

Step 4. Using the black (or brown) icing, outline the antlers, eyes and eyebrows. Place red M&M’s MINIS on the nose.

Step 5. ENJOY!!
