Nom your way through Thanksgiving with just a touch of
homemade fabulousness. Sure, Mom and Dad can handle the turkey. But dessert?
Dessert’s all you, babe.
Grab a roll of refrigerated pie dough and a small cookie
cutter. Cut out shapes, pop them on a cookie sheet and bake up until golden brown.
Place on top of a pre-made pie and voila! Looks homemade, right?
Snag a box of round cookies, a bag of marshmallows, a bag of
chocolate chips and a tube of yellow frosting. Melt the chocolate in a
heatproof bowl, use a dab of it to stick the marshmallow to the cookie, then
carefully dip your little hat in the chocolate. Place on a sheet of wax paper
to harden, then pipe on a buckle shape using the frosting. Instant pilgrim’s
Let them eat cake
Whip up a quick glaze for a store bought bundt cake. Beat
together 4 tbsp melted butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tbsp of milk and a 1/2
tsp of your favorite flavored extract. Drizzle over the cake, then sprinkle
with fall-themed sprinkles.
Gobble ‘em up
Snag some sugar dough at the grocery store along with a few
tubes of icing. Roll out the cookie dough, cut ‘em out in turkey shapes (leaves
or pilgrims work, too), bake according to directions, then decorate once cool.
