15 Cute Creative Thanksgiving Cookie Recipes!

One of our Thanksgiving family traditions is for the kids and I to spend a day baking. Normally my mother-in-law makes everything for dinner and I am in charge of bringing desserts. I make the obligatory pumpkin pie of course and usually some other sort of pie or tart (my Pear Almond Tart has been a hit with the family) and then we bring a couple batches of cookies to take with us. The kids really love making cookies, maybe not as much as they do eating cookies, and they love showing off their cookie making skills to their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.

So to inspire you some Thanksgiving holiday baking and creating some traditions of your own I have put together this great list of cookies to make for Thanksgiving. Some of them are fancy iced creations that require a bit of skill…and some are no bake goodies that you can just assemble from store bought cookies and candies. So no matter your skill level you are sure to find a cookie recipe that you can make!

Pie Crust Cookies

Pie Crust Cookies

When I was a kid my mom always let me play with the leftover pie dough after she made one of her wonderful pies. She would give me a rolling pin, cookie cutters and a little dish of cinnamon and sugar and I would make up little tasty treats that she would bake up for me or let me cook them in my Holly Hobbie Easy Bake Oven (did anyone else have one of those?).
