I got this off an email from Pillsbury this year. I'm posting them as stated in the email. I did change things by forming the cookies by hand, instead of the triangle thing. and I used mini chocolate chips, the regular sized looked too big for the size of my cookies. I couldn't find gumdrops anywhere, imagine that, so i used m&m's. A little time consuming with the hand forming, but I would do them again. Watch the cookies closely, they over cook easy. I'm sure you could use your own sugar cookie dough also.

Made this for a family party and this was a huge hit! Adults and kids were gobbling them up so quickly that I barely was able to get one for myself. The only tiny change I made to the recipe was that I used red M&M's as the nose instead of a gumdrop.
