Thanksgiving Cookies

As many of us (in the U.S.) spend the next few days shopping, cooking and eating;  I hope that we are each able to take a few moments this week to reflect on the pretty amazing list of things in our lives to be thankful for.  In a culture that is built on always wanting more, let’s push back for a moment and assess the incredible abundance that is present in most of our lives.

This week I plan to step away from the computer, put away my phone, and focus on the beautiful little details of real life.  I want to relish in the pleasure of cooking… not to take photos of it, but to simply feed my family delicious food.  I’m going to embrace the joy of doing dishes… being thankful for dishes to wash, warm water to clean them with, and an able body with which to work.

I hope you are able to find a long list of things this week to be thankful for as well.

This set of cookies was made with my Gingerbread Cookie Recipe, and decorated with Royal Icing.

*Supply note- Assorted plaque shaped cutters from Copper Gifts, with the exception of the “give thanks” shape, which was a gift from a friend.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

Psalm 107:1


  1. I made my first batch of these cookies today and they were amazing! Thank you for another great recipe.

  2. Gloria, I’ve been a long-time fan of your blog! Can you please share the color shades you used for the cookies? I just love the tones and now inspired to make Christmas cookies. Thank you for sharing!

    • Hi Michelle, Thanks! I’m sorry, I didn’t keep track of the color combos. I only use Americolor gel colors. The colors that I think I used for these are egg yellow, warm brown, ivory, orange, and maroon. Hope that helps a bit.

  3. ooh these are so pretty. I need to get my hand on these cutter, they are so pretty looking. Love the colors. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

  4. These cookies are fabulous! And yes, there is always something (many things) to be thankful for!
