Everyone knows that Thanksgiving is a time for decadence. While you don’t want to overdo it in the food department, you can absolutely allow yourself a sweet treat to cap off a delicious meal. But for this special meal, many families fall into a Thanksgiving dessert rut. Year after year it’s pumpkin pie, apple pie, and the occasional pecan pie to “spice things up.” What if this year you went beyond pie and make a collection of sweets that are more bite-sized but equally delicious?
The answer is simple; Thanksgiving cookies. You can pull recipes from an array of seasonal fall sweets, or you could even make themed cookies to give your Thanksgiving dinner a little extra party pop. Try these Thanksgiving cookie recipes for a very sweet holiday!
Chock-full of oats, pecans, and raisins, these cookies are perfect for a lunchbox treat or an afternoon snack.
Kids will love helping you decorate these Thanksgiving desserts. Once your cookies are ready, simply apply the decorations in two easy steps!
Fair warning: these cookies are very indulgent. But the best part about these sweets is that you can taste every layer of flavor without being overwhelmed. The pumpkin spice chips are muted by the chocolate morsels and the cinnamon cream cheese filling gives it that fall flavor you crave this time of year.
Dress up the basic sugar cookie with a double dose of warm cinnamon spice.
