Chocolate Reindeer

READY IN: 3hrs 9mins
Recipe by Sam 3

These are a favorite of my children's class rooms. The batter can of course be used with many different cookie cutters. I believe this came from TOH. Preparation time includes chilling. ***Note: In regards to first review, you do indeed need 2 eggs, not 1 and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, not 1 and I have changed the ingredients to say so

I made these to take to my children's playgroup,and they went down ok,but not as well as I expected. A very simple cookie recipe,that's great for novice cooks. Thanks Sam.Made for PRMR.
