In My Own Style: How to Make Pilgrim Hat Cookies


This is an super easy and fun way to be festive during Thanksgiving.  If you want you could even use your own types of cookies just for your own liking.

  • 7 drops of yellow food coloring
  • 32 miniature packages of peanut butter cups (Reeses)
  • 1 package (11-1/2 ounces) fudge-striped cookies
  • 32 pieces of orange mini Chiclets gum



  1. In a small shallow bowl, combine frosting and yellow food coloring. Remove the wrapper to the peanut butter cups.
  2. Holding the bottom of a peanut butter cup, dip top of the cup in yellow frosting. Position over the center hole on the bottom of the cookie, forming the hatband and crown. Add a buckle of Chiclets gum. Repeat with remaining cups and cookies.

This takes at least 1 hour to create. At the end, you should have a Pilgrim Hat cookie that will be ready for you and your friends to eat. You should end up with a total of 32 cookies from this recipe.
