Keebler fudge cookies,

Reese’s peanut butter cups, and

Easy Pilgrim Hat Cookies- No Bake Thanksgiving cookies


  • 1 pack Striped fudge cookies Keebler or any generic brand
  • 1 pack of refrigerated Peanut Butter Cups The small cups- Reese's or any other brand
  • Yellow icing I cheated and used a store bought Wilton tube


  1. Turn the cookies, chocolate side facing up Pilgrim hat cookies
  2. Add a dab of icing to the larger base of the Peanut Butter Cup
  3. Gently place it on top of the cookie base.
  4. Now draw a rim to your Peanut Butter Cup's base with the icing 
  5. Draw a pretty square/rectangle-shaped buckle.
  6. If preparing this ahead of time, place your prepared Pilgrim Hat Cookies in the refrigerator till it's time for the get-together, that way you don't stand the risk of the chocolate melting.

It seriously can’t get easier than this!
