Bake something super cute – reindeer cookies with almond butter

Christmas Fan – yes or no?

Are you a christmas fan? Do you love to bake the whole December and decorate your home?

I need to tell you that I’m not the biggest pre-christmas fan. I always forget to bake and decorate my house. This year I forget to arrange my Advent wreath.


Reindeer for childs and adults

Nevertheless I recognized all the wonderful creation from the Christmas Baking.

So I decided to bake the super cute reindeer cookies for my little nephew super spontaneously. Hew will come to play with us and stay overnight. We don’t have kids so it is alway a pleasure to have him here. I can’t wait to show him these little friends.


Bake healthy with almond butter

Did you know you can use almond butter instead of dairy butter? I replaced a part of the dairy butter with almond butter and it worked well.

I used a long wooden staff for decorating these cute cookies. You can also use a toothpick. The wooden staff is a little bit bigger. To fix the nose (it’s a chocolate bean) you can simple use the melted chocolate.
