A Brief Gobble.

Here’s a quick post of cookies I made last year, before I entered the world of blogging and watermarks. Some are fall-ish, some are for turkey day, but all are meant to get you in the Thanksgiving mindset, and maybe give you a little inspiration to create some goodies of your own!

My oldest loves to use it as well to create wacky photos, like placing a tiara on a picture of great-grandma or having brother sport a mustache.

Give Thanks Turkeys by Melissa Joy CookiesI cut and pasted the dough together for these guys by using a large sunflower and a bowling pin cookie cutter. Sometimes you just have to dig around your stash to make things work. I’m giving thanks for being inventive and thrifty. 😉

I will most likely be bringing some sort of autumn themed cookie sweet to our family gathering in a few weeks. Do you bake something other than the traditional pumpkin pie to celebrate? In my opinion, other than the turkey, baked goods rank as one of the most important items on the Thanksgiving buffet. Mmmmmm, I can’t wait!
