Tomorrow is not just my due date, it is also my firm's annual Thanksgiving potluck luncheon. I have signed up to make one of my favorite holiday dishes, Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Bananas and Brown Sugar. I figured since by next week Baby A will likely be more of a priority than cooking a turkey dinner, I might as well take this opportunity to cook up my favorite recipe of the season.
However, when I saw these adorable (and hassle free) cookies, I almost caved and gave up on the whole cooking thing to bring these. They literally require assembly only and couldn't be more adorable. For anyone looking for an easy recipe with a great outcome, I think you've found THE ONE!
•16 chocolate wafer cookies (such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers)
•1 tube orange frosting with piping tips
•16 small peanut butter cups
1. Place cookies on work surface; squeeze a dime-size dot of frosting in center of each
2. Unwrap and invert peanut butter cups on frosting, pressing down gently
3. Using the round piping tip, pipe a "hat-band" with frosting around peanut butter cup and a square "buckle."
Let frosting set before storing.
If you liked the idea of the recipe but want to add a slightly more homemade touch, here's a great recipe for chocolate wafer cookies...
Can you believe it's almost Thanksgiving?
