We Gather Together Thanksgiving Decorated Cookie Collection

The best part of the Thanksgiving holiday (besides the giving thanks to God part!) is gathering together with family and showing gratitude for all the things we are blessed with. I always immediately think of the hymn "We Gather Together". I have sweet memories from my childhood of Thanksgiving Day preparations with my dad and then the time for the family to gather for the day and enjoy each other (and lots of food.....of course 😳).

Here's a collection of cookies to express my heartfelt gratitude and thanks to God for all He does and that He allows me to express myself here on this blog. What a privilege it is to carry out His purposes each day of my life.

Thank you for "gathering" here on a regular basis and supporting my work and mission for Him. ❀️

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Indian Corn Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

For some reason, Indian corn cookies have been hard to emulate in the past.
Either they were way too detailed and time consuming, or
they didn't appear the way I wanted them to.
Now with fondant embossers, I found a design that I really like....
and it's not too time-consuming.

Β 

Believe it or not, I used a tall Easter egg cutter for this design.
But a longer oval will work just fine.

Outline and flood the entire shape in gold glaze.
Allow the icing to dry for at least 3 hours, and then use either one of these embossers to imprint "kernel" marks into the glaze.

There are other brick texture mats that also might work to make these impressions.

Using orange and brown glaze, outline and flood a few random kernel impressions
throughout the cookie.
(see photo below)

Dry overnight.

Dust dry chocolate luster dust over the kernels to give it a shaded and rustic look.

Mini Cornucopia Cookies (Tutorial)





To make mini cornucopia cookies you will need:
  • Assorted mini sugar cookies (see below)
  • Medium Brown 10-Second Glaze
  • Dark Brown 10-Second Glaze
  • Orange 10-Second Glaze
  • Gold 10-Second Glaze
  • Green 10-Second Glaze
  • Red 10-Second Glaze
  • Purple 10-Second Glaze
  • Ice Cream Cones (waffle style)
 Decide what fruits, vegetables, etc you'd like to include in your mini cornucopia and then
search through your mini cutters to find something comparable.
I'm showing you here how I cut out my Indian corn, apple, grapes, pumpkin, and leaf.
Use your imagination to come up with other fun shapes.

    Here's a pictorial of how I did all my mini shapes....






    I used a "sugar" ice cream cone as my cornucopia.

    AFTER I did this, of course!, I saw this cool link
    on how to curl the end of a waffle cone.
    So I'm sharing it with you......
    so your mini cornucopias can be way cooler than mine. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    On this day where we seek to acknowledge all we are grateful for......I wanted you to know that I think you all are extra special. Thanks for comin' around on a regular basis and allowing me to share something I'm so passionate about. :) I count it a privilege to share with all of you.

    Here's my final Thanksgiving cookies for 2011. I know I've probably over done it a bit....but then I keep telling you, I AM Cookie CRAZIE. ;)









    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4-5

    Thanksgiving Cornucopia

    I've been wanting to do a cornucopia grouping for Thanksgiving for quite some time. I had a wonderful time designing all the different elements and then arranging them together for  my 2011 Thanksgiving collection.




    I made three cornucopia sets. One was sold at our Ukraine fundraiser auction last weekend. The second is to take to work on Thanksgiving Day (I have to work at the hospital for the holiday) to cheer everyone up when they have to work on such a special holiday. And the last group I've got on my own dining room table to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. Every time I see it, I smile. :)

    Here's the grouping at the auction.


    And here's the "official" photo of my cornucopia collection. :)


    Believe it or not.....I still have bunch of Thanksgiving cookies to share. I've been busy busy busy.
