Thanksgiving Cookie Recipes - Simple Yet Delicious Treats

Are you looking for some really great Thanksgiving cookie recipes?

Cookies aren't quite dessert, but they aren't a main dish, which makes them often overlooked, but if you and your guests love a little something sweet to snack on, then these recipes should get you going.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

For this Thanksgiving cookie recipe, you will need:

  • Two and a half cups of flour
  • One half teaspoon baking soda
  • One quarter teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
  • One cup of brown sugar
  • One half cup of sugar
  • Three quarter cups of butter
  • One egg
  • One cup pumpkin
  • One cup of raisins
  • One half cup of chopped walnuts
  • One teaspoon of vanilla

    To make them:

  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F.

  • Blend the butter and sugars together until smooth.

  • Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Set aside and mix the dry ingredients together. Then mix the dry ingredients with the sugar mixture.

  • Fold in the raisins and walnuts

  • Drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes

    Pecan Pie Bars

    Not all cookies have to be round and they don't all have to taste like pumpkin. Try this Thanksgiving cookie recipe for a different twist.

    Ingredients you will need:

  • One box of chocolate cake mix. Set one cup of the mix aside.
  • One quarter cup of softened butter
  • One slightly beaten egg
  • Three eggs
  • Three quarters of a cup of dark corn syrup
  • Three quarters of a cup of packed brown sugar
  • One and one quarter cup of chopped pecans
  • One teaspoon vanilla

    Directions for this Thanksgiving cookie recipe:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 baking pan and set it aside.

  • Set aside one cup of the cake mix. Use the remaining to make the crust and combine it with the butter and the slightly beaten egg. Stir it all together with a fork until crumbly. Press it into the baking sheet. Bake it for about 12 minutes.

  • For the filling, combine the three eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar and vanilla. Add the remaining cake mix and stir until just blended. Spread the filling over the baked crust and sprinkle the top with pecans.

  • Bake until the filling is set when shaken slightly, or about 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars. Cover and chill until ready to eat.

    Turkey Cookies

    These treats are not only fun to eat, but they are easy to make and for the kids to decorate.

    For this Thanksgiving cookie recipe, you will need:

  • One roll of refrigerated sugar cookies
  • One container of chocolate frosting
  • Orange decorating icing
  • Black decorating gel
  • Orange decorating gel
  • Candy corn
  • Mini candy coated chocolate baking bits

    Directions for this Thanksgiving cookie recipe:

  • Follow the directions of the cookie package to make.

  • Spoon the frosting into a zipper bag and seal it. Cut off a small corner.

  • Pipe frosting onto the outer edge of half of the cookie. This will serve as your "glue" for the candy corn tail. Arrange the candy corn over the frosting to make feathers of a turkey tail.

  • Use the orange icing to make a turkey face and feet. Use the orange gel as "glue" for the chocolate bits.

  • Use the black gel for the eye centers.

    There you have it - a few delicious sweet treats. We hope you enjoy preparing, serving and eating these wonderful Thanksgiving cookie recipes.
