Fall Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies

Fall Tic Tac Toe Board and Pieces by Melissa Joy

I love coming up with cookies that can double as fun for kids! As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wanted to try out other varieties of my Halloween tic-tac-toe cookies. My youngest got such a kick out of playing it with me, and yes, munching on the pieces, that making another set was inevitable. And necessary, since we ate them all.

Fall Mini Cookies by Melissa Joy

This was easily done with the mass of mini cookie cutters I own and changing up frosting colors to suit the season. Behold, the autumn version of a cookie Tic-Tac-Toe game!

Even though mini cookies are, well, mini, the board itself is a huge six inches square. It had to be big enough that when a grid was piped, the playing pieces could fit in the spaces. I used a scalloped pastry cutter and ruler as a guide.

My son favors the baby acorn, but the little red leaf is my favorite.

I don’t think you can go wrong when you pipe 0r draw a simple, sweet face on a cookie. The cuteness factor increases tenfold, don’t you think?

Tic Tac Toe Pieces By Melissa Joy CookiesI think this set would be super for Thanksgiving. It always seems to take FOVEVER for the turkey dinner to be done, so why not keep the kiddies busy with a game and a snack? Well, it’s not the healthiest of snacks, but some people do put marshmallows on their sweet potatoes, so I hardly see how a tiny bit more sugar is going to make a difference. It is a holiday after all…

Thanksgiving Cookies Tic Tac Toe by Melissa Joy

These cookies most likely won’t last long, so I am bound to make a winter edition. I don’t want to rush that though. Instead I will enjoy the rest of the Wisconsin autumn while it here.

  1. How would you package these to give as a favor for Thanksgiving dinner for the kiddies? I’d be afraid they’d get all jumbled if just put in a cello bag. Some kind of separated box with a lid? *racking brain over here*
