Holiday Dessert Gallery: 10 Festive Thanksgiving Cookie Recipes

By  | 

Whether you’re calmly assembling your cornucopia centerpiece or frantically trying to find an oven rack that fits your enormous bird, it’s time to face it: Thanksgiving is just two days away. Yesterday we found ten unusual pie recipes to spice up your after-dinner spread of sweets. But sometimes don’t you just get sick of pie? (Kidding. We don’t, either.) But we do know that pie crusts aren’t every baker’s cup of tea. So we found ten Thanksgiving cookie recipes that will be the perfect complement to dinner on Thursday (thanks to flavors like ginger, cinnamon, apple, cranberry, maple, and pecan). Just make sure to have a glass of wine or three prior to diving into the cookie plate — you may prefer not to remember how many you’re about to eat.
