How to Make Cute Thanksgiving Pie Cookies with a Candy Corn Cutter via Sweetsugarbelle.comSince I’ve made pie slices several times before, I thought I’d change things up a bit and add a sweet, smiling face.

The best part is, I snagged a three-pack of the most perfect candy corn cutters I’ve ever seen.

I was able to use the smallest one to make an almost-mini version, which is the perfect size for kids. Mine just happen to have their annual Thanksgiving feast at church this week. What luck!

To decorate these cookies you will need:

Begin by outlining the cookie with a #2 tip, then quickly fill with matching flood icing. If necessary, use and offset spatula to work the icing until it is smooth.

It is important to work quickly so that the eyes and cheeks sink into the first layer of icing before it sets.

Once the icing is dry, use a #5 tip to add a wavy “crust”.

I noticed while packing boxes that many of these types of accents were damaged during shipping. If they’re not going far, an accent is no problem, but, if you are planning to ship, I would reccomend leaving it off.

These happy cookies are great for Thanksgiving parties at school or with friends, along with the big day!
