Did someone say DESSERT!?!

How cute are these turkey cookies?....


INGREDIENTS:
Oreo cookie
Candy Corn
Hershey Kiss
OPTIONAL: Green icing(or white with green food coloring)
Red icing or small piece of red licorice

DIRECTIONS:
Divide the Oreo into two pieces. (An adult can do this easily without breaking the cookies by using a sharp knife.)
Place four or five pieces of candy corn around the top of the Oreo cookie that has the icing.
Place the flat part of the Kiss in the icing at the bottom of the Oreo.
OPTIONAL: Add green icing to the other half of the Oreo so the Turkey will 'stand up'.
OPTIONAL: Add a touch of red icing or a small string of red licorice to make the waddle.
OPTIONAL: Eyes can be added using small pieces of icing or by 'stealing' a little bit of frosting with a toothpick.


I might make them for a play date next week. I have to think of somewhere to take them, they're just too cute not to make! But I won't be taking them for Thanksgiving dinner. There's no sense having cookies, when there's pie! My personal favorite is my mom's banana cream pie. I don't make it nearly as good as she does, but I do a fair impersonation. Here's the recipe! WARNING: It's TDF (to die for)!


MOM'S FLAKY CRUST
1 1/3 C sifted flour (don't forget to sift!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C Crisco (butter flavor works best)
3 Tbs water (fridge temperature)
Preheat oven to 425. Bake 10-15 min. Prick bottom if unfilled.


MOM'S BANANA CREAM PIE FILLING
2/3 C sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbs cornstarch
1 1/2 Tbs flour
3 egg yokes
1 Tbs butter
3 C milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla


Mix sugar, salt, cornstarch, and flour. Add milk. Cook until a scald. Pour a little into 3 beaten egg yokes, then add the rest back into the pan. Cook until thick then add butter, vanilla, and sliced bananas. Do not stop stirring!!! (I use a whisk).

What adorable cookies! And pretty easy, which is even better.

How many bananas for the pie? The recipe doesn't mention.
