Yesterday evening we made reindeer cookies to start off this Christmas season. Here's how to decorate them: First after you make the dough, you shape it into small triangle shapes on the baking sheet. Next, you get to get to put 2 pretzels in the top corners for the antlers. Next, you put two green M&M's on for the eyes. Then, you put the red M&M on for Rudolph's red nose. Lastly,you put them in the oven for 10 to15 minutes. You can find the recipe here Enjoy!
Here are four facts that I learned about reindeer.
- Both male and female reindeer grow antlers.
- Reindeer typically have a lifespan of around 10 years.
- An adult reindeer can weigh up to 300 pounds.
- Reindeer are good and strong swimmers.
Since you can't live on cookies we made Chili too. My sister and I won third place at the 4-H Chili Bonanza with this recipe last year. The 4-H Chili Bonanza is fundraiser for 4-H where you can take your chili and display your table. Then you serve a small bowl of your chili to the judge. After that you serve the extra chili to every one there. This year instead of a chili bonanza they had a waffle supper. The chili recipe is here.
