  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, sugar, peanut butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Stir flour and baking soda into creamed butter mixture until well incorporated.
  3. Roll dough into 24 balls. Flatten each ball and shape into an upside-down triangle. Press two pretzels into the two top corners of each triangle for the antlers. Press two chocolate chips into the center of each triangle for the eyes, and one chocolate chip on the bottom of the triangle for the nose. Arrange cookies on baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

How far this recipe stretches really depends on how big you make the dough balls. For the first few batches, we used about 1/2 Tbs per ball. It worked just fine, but we realized we were going to have a ton of cookies (not that that's a bad thing!), so we moved up to a full Tbs per ball, which also worked great. Either way, the peanut butter cookie with pretzel is a winner!

Only had 1/2 cup butter, so I substituted peanut butter making the total amount of peanut butter I used 1 1/2 cups. The dough was dry and hard to roll into balls, the antlers kept falling off too. Made them with my kids, which was fun. They aren't bad tasting cookies, just need to figure out the antler thing.

Good cookies! @bugparks, how did you burn yourself putting on a pretzel? I believe the directions say to put the decorations on before you bake the cookies, not after.

i love making this recipe. its so cute. the only thing is don't get to close to the pan when you put the stuff on because i burned myself putting on a pretzel. otherwise its cute and fun for your kids to do. and people love how they look.
