Already baking to fill up those holiday cookie trays? Making Christmas cookies is a longstanding tradition in many families, and many recipes have been handed down for generations. Baking cookies with my kids has not always been easy, but now that they are older, they are fantastic mixers and decorators. 

Gingerbread cookies are their favorite, and they are always creative with the icing. Santa hats were added this year, but a few years ago a new tradition was born: we made gingerbread men into reindeer. How? 

We turned our gingerbread man upside down and everyone's favorite reindeer cookies were born. Look closely at the photo and you'll see how we simply flipped them upside down, and decorated accordingly. So easy and so fun!

This gingerbread man cookie hack is a must try this holiday season. Enjoy!
