I saw variations of these Pilgrim Hat Cookies on Pinterest and I thought they looked really fun. They will be a great treat to make with my son, Aaron, once he gets older. They are also really tasty too!! I plan to make more of these for Thanksgiving dessert and they can even be used as place card holders.
Pilgrim Hat Cookies
(Adapted from recipe at Taste of Home)
1 tub of ready-made cream cheese frosting
1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 package of chocolate wafers (my package had 42 cookies)
42 miniature peanut butter cups
1. Empty the frosting into a small bowl and add the peanut butter. Beat on low until the frosting and peanut butter are combined to make peanut butter frosting.
2. Holding the bottom of a peanut butter cup, dip the top in the peanut butter frosting, swirling it around to cover it. Place the top of the peanut butter cup on the center of the chocolate wafer, forming the hat.
3. Then frost a square shape on the center of the peanut butter cup, forming the buckle.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the remaining cookies and peanut butter cups.
