Who said your Thanksgiving dessert table should be laden with pies alone? This collection of recipes features 50 Thanksgiving cookies that are incredibly easy to make and bring Fall holiday flavors with every bite!

You must be wondering why Thanksgiving cookies should be a big deal when Thanksgiving is technically all about the turkey, sides, and pies.

If you have kids, you will agree that there’s always space on that class party sign-up sheet for cookies, right?

And if you’re like me, if the school has no rules about taking homemade treats, then homemade is the route we would prefer.

Sure, the days leading up to the Fall holidays can be busy, so nobody needs or has time for long, elaborate recipes.
