Thanksgiving Day Treats: How to Make Easy Pilgrim Hat Cookies!

Thanksgiving Day is almost here! Woohoo! It makes me so happy, as it really does signify the beginning of the holiday season, which I love! I love doing food crafts with the kids, and one of our favorite playful touches that we add to our holiday table every year are these cute pilgrim hats. They're super cute but, more importantly, super easy to make!  

You'll need:

  • 1 package Keebler Fudge Stripes Cookies
  • 1 tube icing in your desired color (for the hat trim)
  • Miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • M&M's (plain)

Here’s how you make them:

  1. Place fudge cookies upside down so the all-chocolate side is facing up.
  2. Pipe a generous amount of frosting along the top of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
  3. Press the peanut butter cup down firmly onto the cookie so that the frosting spreads out.
  4. Add a dollop of frosting on the front of the peanut butter cup and add on an M&M.
