Pilgrim Hat Cookies
24 Oreo Fudge Cremes Cookies
1 tube white frosting with piping tips
24 Reese’s mini peanut butter cups
Place cookies on work surface; squeeze a dime-size dot of frosting in center of each. Unwrap and invert peanut butter cups on frosting, pressing down gently. Using a small round piping tip, pipe a "hat-band" with frosting around peanut butter cup and a square "buckle." Let frosting set before storing.
Makes 24 cookies.
Aren't they cute? I love how they are just three ingredients. They were really easy to do except that I got the wrong kind of frosting for the piping. I used the Betty Crocker Decorator Icing. It comes in a tube. It did not work well. The first one was great, but then it started getting really hard to work with. Instead of coming out smoothly, it clumped up really badly. I wonder if maybe the heat of my hand changed the consistency of it. Really gave me problems. So some of my hats looked pretty rough, but oh well! So don't get that kind. If you try this and you find a kind that does work well, please let me know what you used in the comments.
The only other problem I had was that some of the Reese's cups had bald spots where you could see the peanut butter through the chocolate. So make sure you pick up more of those than you actually need so that you can pick out the "good" ones. My husband happily "took care" of the bald spot ones for me. :)
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. I'll be back next week with some very un-Thanksgiving recipes for you!
