Pilgrim Hat Cookies Recipe

Pilgrim Hat Cookies Recipe

7 drops yellow food coloring

 Tom Turkey Cookies

What you will need:
Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, or Oreo style sandwich cookies
Candy Corn
Chocolate frosting
Hershey’s Whoppers
Mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
White tubed frosting

First, you take the cookie, and 6 pieces of candy corn, and insert them into the sandwich frosting, tip first, so that it creates a tail fan.

Next, take the frosting, peanut butter cup, and whopper, and let's make a body. Unwrap the peanut butter cup (actually unwrap two- one to use, one to eat), and turn it on it's side. Smear a bit of frosting onto the top, and press the whopper into it.

From there, you will want to use the white frosting to create two eyes, and a small mouth on the milk ball- you'll want the smaller flat side of the peanut butter cup facing outward.

From there, cover the larger flat side of the PB Cup with more frosting, and press it onto the cookie, towards the bottom away from the tail fan. Use a second cookie to lay flat, and use frosting to secure the bird to the bottom cookie, so it has a 'stand'.

You can play around with other items- some people break the tip of a candy corn off, and use it for a beak on the whopper for the turkey.

For the next treat, you will want: 
Round, baked sugar cookies 
Chocolate or Vanilla Frosting 
M&M Mini's 
Orange tubed frosting

Frost a rainbow type arch along one side of the cookie, and start laying out candy corn on it, to create a tail fan- these can either stick out past the cookie, or be completely on the cookie.
Using more frosting, secure 2 M&M Mini's in the middle to use as eyes.
With the orange tubed frosting, use the small round piping head, and pipe on two feet, and you have adorable Turkey sugar cookies for Thanksgiving!
