PILGRIM HAT COOKIES–easy enough for your kids to make

pilgramhatcookiesHere’s a treat that the kids will love and can help make as their contribution for Thanksgiving. The best part is that you might already have the peanut butter cups, left over from the Halloween. You only need three ingredients: thin chocolate wafers, small peanut butter cups and yellow piping icing. You can buy cake mate icing at your local grocery store.

SIZE: serves 8 people

16 chocolate wafer cookies (such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers)
1 tube of orange frosting, with piping tip
16 small peanut butter cups


  1. Place cookies on work surface; squeeze a dime-size dot of frosting in center of each
  2. Unwrap and invert peanut butter cups on frosting, pressing down gently
  3. Using the round piping tip, pipe a “hat-band” with frosting around peanut butter cup and a square “buckle.” Let frosting set before storing
