Happy Thanksgiving


I thought this year for Thanksgiving I would try to make something special and different so when I saw some cute little pumpkins on Marsha's Kitchen blog I decided to give it a whirl.  I have all kinds of cookie cutters so I found my pumpkin shape one and proceeded to make them only to find that I could only put 1 teaspoon of pumpkin on each little pumpkin shape and it would take me days to use up all the pumpkin mix at that rate.So I made one batch with the cookie cutter, then rolled out another pie crust and made the rest into pumpkin pie.
They turned out cute and very tasty, but then I dropped the container on the floor and now they don't look so pretty.Good thing I took a picture first.

 
Opps, I forgot to take a picture before my hubby cut into it.
Well, the truth is, I don't really like pumpkin pie so I decided to do what I know and love.

Yes, that would be cookies.  Since I had spent so much time with the pumpkin and such, I decided to keep it simple.  I used the Toll House recipe and used M&M's instead of chips.

I used the holiday dark chocolate and holiday mint.


Raw cookie dough.  Yum.  There's nothing better.  I know you aren't supposed to eat unbaked cookie dough but I have been doing it all my life and don't actually know of anyone that has died from it and if it happens to me.... well, I can't think of a better way to go; with a big ol' spoon full of cookie dough in my mouth.


Yes, I did bake a few, just for fun.
Happy Thanksgiving and remember to be thankful.

Love your turkey! Is that part of a tablerunner? Your cookies look very yummy, Cindy; and I think you can rest easy about the raw dough as if it were "bad" they wouldn't put it in ice cream, right? LOL
