    Heat oven to 375°F. Unwrap log; cut into 1/4-inch slices. Insert 1 inch of wooden stick into a corner of each cookie. Place slices about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Reshape cookies if necessary. Insert 2 pretzels into top of each cookie slice for antlers. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
