Last Minute Holiday Cookie Ideas!

So you've got the turkey and dressing, you've got the ham, potatoes salad, green bean casserole, and the cranberry sauce; everything you need for your Christmas dinner!  Except you forgot the cookies for the kids.  Or maybe you've been invited last minute to a holiday dinner.  So what to do?  Here are a few last minute ideas that you can use to satisfy even the most finicky little sweet tooth.

Using store bought cookies, maybe even the slice and bake style for some, you can add that final touch to your holiday table.  These reindeer cookies are made with Nutter Butter cookies, pretzels, M&M's and a little icing to hold everything in place......too cute!

These Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies can be made with the slice and bake cookie dough.  Just press a Hershey's Kiss into the center before they cool completely.  I made these in Home Economics when I was in high school.  They were such a hit with my family.
