    Acorn Cookies:
    Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped
    Round Nutter Butter snack cookies
    Creamy peanut butter
    Melted chocolate

    1.  Twist open the Nutter Butter cookies and remove the peanut butter filling.

    2.  Melt the chocolate (about ½ cup) and let cool to room temperature.

    3.  Using a piping bag or a knife, place a small amount of peanut butter on the Nutter Butter cookie.

    4.  Working quickly, dip the bottom of the Hershey’s kiss into the melted chocolate and attach the cookie to the kiss, peanut butter side down, so the chocolate and peanut butter melt together.  Repeat for as many acorns as you need.

  • 5. Place remaining chocolate in a piping bag and create little stems on top of the Nutter Butter cookies.

    Toss 2-3 acorns in with a bowl of vanilla ice cream and you’re good to go!

  • 3. Using 1/4-cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray divide warm cereal mixture into 24 portions. Using buttered hands shape each portion into ball. Insert lollipop stick into each. Place on wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate about 10 minutes or until firm.

    4. In microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate morsels and oil. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip each ball into chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Return to wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes more or until chocolate is almost set. Decorate with candy corn for tail feathers and beak, gently pressing candy into chocolate and cereal mixture. Press in white candies for eyes. Let stand until firm.

  • Pilgrim Hat Cookies


    8 oz chocolate-flavored candy coating, cut up into small pieces

    2 Tbsp shortening 1 11.5 oz package of Keebler® Fudge Stripes Cookies

    1 10 oz package of marshmallows 1.68 oz tube of yellow icing




    Answer by Michigan-Mom74 at 1:28 AM on Nov. 19, 2012

  • 1. Place the Keebler Fudge Stripes Cookies stripes down, spaced evenly on wax paper.

    2. In a small, heavy saucepan, melt candy coating and shortening over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in desired food coloring.

    3. Using a fork, dip one marshmallow at a time into melted candy coating.

    4. Use a chopstick or skewer to scrape off the excess melted candy coating from bottom of fork.

    5. Using the same chopstick or skewer push the coated marshmallow centered on top of a cookie. The heat from the melted coating will make it adhere nicely!

    6. Place hat in the refrigerator for about 20 min until the coating has set.

    7. Once chilled, use yellow tubed icing and decorate the hat with a buckle.

    Not sure how good you are at baking, but I have done these in the past, and it is pretty easy, and cute!

  • Rice crispy treats use fall cookie cutters and cut into shapes

  • When I clicked on this, I was thinking more "neat alternatives to pie" than literally "cute." So it looks like Michigan-Mom has "cute Thanksgiving desserts" covered. lol

    What I was thinking of was a recipe for apple, rosemary & caramel shortcakes that I have made a few times. I originally saw it on a Martha Stewart episode years ago and the recipe was in her magazine (and website.) Her guest was Jerry Traunfeld, chef at a restaurant that features herbs (hence the rosemary in this recipe) and it really made a good fall/harvest dessert that didn't require the advance preparation of pie crust & pie but is still special. I have kept the sour cream shortcake biscuit recipe as my go-to recipe for shortcake.

    It's convenient on Thanksgiving because you start on the stove top (melting the sugar/butter) but then just tuck in the apple halves & herb sprigs and put the skillet in the oven. Then assemble the shortcakes & cooked apples.
