Happy 2015 Thanksgiving!

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.
Psalm 107:8

I am giving thanks for so many things this season.

I hope that you and your family have time to stop and reflect on all things for which you're thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie Cookies (Tutorial)

It's a little embarassing to see how many different kinds of pie cookies I've made over the years.
I think it is definitely a sign to all of you how much I love pie. :)

Pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving icon.
And it is also super yummy.

You can make pie for all the pie lovers and pie cookies for all the cookie lovers. ;)

There's nothing new about the idea of making a pie slice out of a triangle-shaped cookie.
But I tried to put a different spin on it by using sugar cookie dough to form the "pie crust" too.

Once the triangle cookies are cut, add left over cookie dough to the wide edge of the cookies
to form a "hand made crust" just like grandma makes. :)
(see photo below)

After the cookies are baked, outline and flood the entire cookie (except the crust) with orange glaze.

 Dry cookies overnight.

Brush some dry caramel and chocolate dusts onto the crust to give it a realistic baked look.

If desired, add a dollop of "whipped cream" (white edible clay) with a #18 star tip.
(Be sure to knead in a tiny amount of water to the clay to make it pipe-able.)

CookieCrazie's Week in Review


Personal Side

The Christmas decorations are all up......just in time 
for very rainy weather that kept me home most of the week.
What a treat to just "be" in the house and enjoy the decorations while I decorated gingerbread. :)
Soon I'll have gingerbread cookies hanging from my cookie Christmas tree,
and everything will be complete and "ready" for the holidays.

I have to work this weekend AND Thanksgiving Day, 
so it is super nice to have all of the prep work done ahead of time.

There's a new social media (very similar to FB) that cookie decorators have migrated to......
so just in case you'd like to try it out, here's my TSU page.
If you need an invitation, use my short code "cookiecrazie".
Hope to see you there! 
Maybe we will all actually get to SEE each other's pages that we've liked. ;)

One week to Thanksgiving.......Yeah!


Instagram photos for this week:

Happy Friday!
