The family is coming to town for Thanksgiving to see you, but you haven’t thought of a festive desert yet. Coming up with the right Thanksgiving goodies can make the holidays even better. We here at Rob Green Buick GMC in Twin Falls, ID have a few fun Thanksgiving treats that will have family and friends laughing the night away.
Pilgrim Hat Cookies
The pilgrim hat cookies are a great treat for kids and adults alike. In addition to being quick to make, they’re also perfect for those on a strict budget this holiday season. All you need are some fudge-striped cookies, vanilla frosting, yellow food coloring, peanut butter cups, and orange mini Chiclets gum.
Cream-Filled Pumpkin Cupcakes
Making a batch of cream-filled pumpkin cupcakes is a little more time consuming, but well worth the effort. To make these cupcakes, you’ll need cupcake ingredients and a can of solid-pack pumpkin, with some cinnamon for added flavor.
To create the filling, you’ll need to combine cornstarch and milk in a saucepan until it runs smooth. Boil the mixture while stirring and let it cool. Add cream shortening, butter, and confectioners’ sugar. Next, add the cornstarch mixture while beating until it’s fluffy. Finally, cut a circle in the top of each cupcake and add the filling!
Turkey Pilgrim Cookies
Creating a batch of turkey pilgrim cookies is a quick and easy task, especially for such a sweet treat! All you need is some candy corn, double stuffed Oreos, chocolate and vanilla frosting, Hershey kisses, peanut butter cups, miniature marshmallows, Rolo candies, and orange food coloring.
