Thankgiving Fun

No Bake Pilgrim Hat Cookies



Ingredients

24 chocolate-striped shortbread cookies
12-ounce package of chocolate chips

24 marshmallows
tube of yellow decorators' frosting

Instructions


Set the chocolate-striped cookies stripes down on a wax-paper-covered tray, spacing them well apart.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler.

One at a time, stick a wooden toothpick into a marshmallow, dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate, and promptly center it atop a cookie.

Using a second toothpick to lightly hold down the marshmallow, carefully pull out the first toothpick.

Chill the hats until the chocolate sets, then pipe a yellow decorators' frosting buckle on the front of each hat.

This German Chocolate Pie doesn't look "cute", but it sure looks good! I plan to put my non-existent baking skills to the test and try making it.

WOW! That looks awesome! I especially like the fact that it has only 1-Tbsp of flour in the whole recipe. I don't know if I'd consider this recipe "healthy" (lol), but I like it. I stole the link and put it on my facebook page. Thanks!

How To: Make Pumpkin Pie Spice

Ingredients:

1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. ground ginger
4 tsp. ground nutmeg**
2 tsp. ground allspice
2 tsp. ground cloves

Method:

In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients until well-blended. Store in an air-tight jar.

**If using freshly grated nutmeg, you might add slightly less as the flavor can be more intense.

Caramel Apple Cider Cookies






Caramel Apple Cider Cookies Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (7.4 ounce) box Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink Mix (*not sugar free*)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (14 ounce) bag Kraft Caramels, unwrapped

Method:

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line cookie sheets with parchment or a silpat. (The melted caramel may stick to the bottom if you just use cooking spray on a plain baking sheet.)

In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. With an electric mixer, cream together butter, sugar, salt and all 10 packages of apple cider drink mix powder, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and mix well. Gradually add flour mixture to butter/egg mixture. Mix until just combined.

Scoop out cookie dough ball about the size of a walnut (about 2 tablespoons). Flatten the ball of dough slightly in the palm of your hand. Press the unwrapped caramel into the center of your dough and seal the dough around it, covering it completely. Shape the dough into a ball, and place on parchment covered cookie sheets about 3 inches apart.

Bake 12-14 minutes, or until very lightly browned around the edges. Once the cookies are done, carefully slide the parchment or silpat off of the baking sheet right out onto the counter. Allow cookies to partially cool on the parchment/silpat. When cookies are cool enough to be firm but still slightly warm, carefully twist off of parchment and allow to finish cooling upside down (either on the parchment/silpat or on a rack).

Yield: Approximately 4 dozen, depending on the size of your dough.

If you want an extra chocolate kick in these, you can substitute Milk Duds for caramels.

I think you could use any sugar cookie dough...even a store bought roll of dough to make these...just use the method for putting caramels or milk duds inside the cookies.

I toured http://www.angellandphelps.com/index.php with my Grandson last week and we discovered a wonderful indulgence.

Chocolate dipped Ruffles Potato Chips.



So we are going to make them together for Thanksgiving.
But we will discussed it and decided to only dip half the Ruffles in chocolate.

I think that if you let children contribute to the dishes on the Thanksgiving table they will remember and
then they will re-create those dishes when they have their own homes.
And they will remember you.
