Thanksgiving cookies are a holiday staple, but they’re not quite the same as their traditional cousin: the turkey.
Here’s how to make them in your own kitchen.1.
Choose the right spices.
There are a lot of good, simple spices to use for stuffing.
Try the pumpkin pie spice or the cinnamon-sugar combination for a hearty Thanksgiving dessert.
If you can’t find any good ones, you can always use your favorite spice blends.2.
Add the turkey to the dough.
Put the turkey on a large sheet pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Cover and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool for 15 to 20 minutes before slicing and serving.3.
Heat the oven to 425°F.
Remove the turkey from the pan and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Spread the turkey mixture evenly over the pan, and brush the top of the turkey with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake for 5 to 6 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.4.
Place the cranberry sauce in a large bowl and add cranberries, raisins, and applesauce.
Stir until combined.
Cook the pumpkin.
Place 1/2 cup pumpkin puree in a food processor, pulse until the pumpkin is finely chopped.
Pour in a cup of warm water, and pulse to combine.
Blend until smooth.
Remove pumpkin from the processor and let soak for 10 to 15 minutes, before serving in a hot pan.6.
