  • 1
    In large bowl, break up cookie dough; stir in molasses. Add flour, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and cloves; mix thoroughly with hands until blended.
  • 2
    With hands, shape cookie dough into 8-inch log. Shape into triangle-shaped log. Place in freezer 45 minutes or in refrigerator 1 to 2 hours until firm.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 350°F. With thin sharp knife, cut dough into 30 (1/4-inch) slices. On ungreased cookie sheets, place 2 inches apart. Place 2 pretzel twists on each triangle near corners for antlers.
  • 4
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set and light golden brown. While warm, lightly press 2 chocolate chips into each cookie for eyes and gumdrop for nose. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Let stand until chocolate chips are set, about 15 minutes. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.

Expert Tips

  • Candy-coated chocolate candies may be substituted for the gumdrop nose.
  • Keep dough well-chilled for easy slicing.
