These were easy and my son's third grade class loved them as their party dessert, which they put together. Used brown and red M&Ms in place of other candy. Meringue powder (not cheap) not necessary if cookies are consumed right away.

Really, if you are going for conveience, use PIllsbury slice and bake gingerbread cookies. Slice off circles, press in pretzles for antlers, I use raisens for the eyes, and red hot for the nose. Then just bake for 9 to 10 minutes - yummy and no mixing.

Meringue powder is pricey so I made Royal Icing instead with confectioners sugar, egg whites and lemon juice. Find a recipe you like! Small candy canes can be an adventure to find, so purchase early in the season. These cookies dry out quickly so eat soon after making or use for decorating. Our grandchildren had a wonderful time decorating these cookies and left some on plates for Santa and Rudolph, who loved them very much!
