LSU AgCenter shares special recipe

Happy Holidays from the LSU AgCenter in Webster Parish. This recipe is fun for the entire family! 


1 package of cookie dough (you can choose from sugar, gingerbread, peanut butter, or chocolate chip dough)

32 small pretzels  

32 raisins or chocolate chips 

16 small cinnamon candies 


Keep cookie dough refrigerated until ready to use. Do not eat or play with any raw cookie dough or any other raw dough products made with flour that is intended to be cooked or baked. Why? Flour, regardless of the brand, can contain bacteria that cause disease.

Slice cookie dough in about ¼ inch thick pieces or you can choose to purchase the dough already pre-sectioned. 

Make sure to wash your hands, kitchen surfaces, and cooking equipment first before making the cookies.

Open the package and place dough on a non-stick cookie sheet. Use hands to shape dough into an oval. Be sure to spread the cookies relatively far apart to avoid the cookies sticking to each other. 

Add two pretzels and two raisins for eyes, and antlers, and one cinnamon candy for nose.

Bake accordingly to the cookie dough package instructions. 

Cool cookies on parchment or wire rack.

Enjoy your freshly baked reindeer cookies.
