Oreo Turkey Cookies & Pilgrim Hat Cookies

Gratitude Card 18: Send a card to another mom

For years we have made these turkey cookies with our family. I found another FUN cookie to make at Thanksgiving…Pilgrim hats with Reese’s. Of course, my daughter loves tradition and told me she would be making turkey cookies. So, I guess I’ll be taking ingredients for both cookies to my parent’s farm for Thanksgiving.

Which one will you make?

Thanksgiving Activities for Kids

A couple years ago, I volunteered at my daughter, Ashley’s, school. She was teaching first grade to at-risk kids. It was the first time I had met her class and some of them hugged me as soon as I entered the room.

They loved making Oreo Turkey Cookies. Every holiday thereafter, they asked me to come back and make holiday cookies with them. I guess the turkey cookies were a huge hit.
