Earlier this week I shared my Snowmen Sugar Cookies with you and wanted to show you how easy it is to turn a simple sugar cookie into anything. One of my favorite kids Christmas movies is Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer. A cute little story based on Santa’s ninth reindeer. So I thought I’d shine the spotlight on Rudolph and make an awesome sugar cookie of him, similar to my snowmen.
