Reviews for Pilgrim Hat Cookies
"Super easy and very cute. I used cut up fruit leather for the buckles."
"Super easy and very cute. Had 2 dozen of them done in about 15 minutes. Could not find Chiclets anywhere, but was able to find Tic Tacs in a color that worked perfectly."
"I made these with my kindergarten class. Easy enough for them to follow instructions. They came out adorable, I used icing as well for the buckles. Kids gave recipe 5 stars, they devoured them and said "These are delicious!""
"Adorable! My kids had a blast making these and everyone enjoyed eating them."
"I made these this past Thanksgiving for my daughters, my niece, and my nephews. They were a big hit. I saved a step and bought a tube of decorator's yellow icing, and I used sprinkles instead of chiclets for the buckles. They were so easy to make, and yummy too!"
"Very simple the 6 year old did these and had a lot of fun."
"Fun to make Thanksgiving morning with my 13 year old daughter while we watched the parade. Used plain white icing without the food coloring and looked just as good. Couldn't find Chiclets so cut slices of a Lifesaver Gummy and it worked great. Everyone loved them! They are our new Thanksgiving tradition!"
"I used mini m&m's and just picked out yellow and orange ones"
"Really easy to make. Couldn't find the chiclets gum so I used tic tacs instead. Took this to my daughter's classroom for her Thanksgiving feast and didn't get any back!!"
