Thanksgiving + Fall Cookies

November 24, 2020 in cookies - No Comments - 2 min read

So my husband and I moved from Portland, Oregon to Charlotte, North Carolina in August, and, as one might imagine when moving, one of the biggest differences is the weather. Fall in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful, but short. The leaves change color and then fall off the trees in a matter of a month. Early November the cold really sets in.

But here, it was 70 Saturday! It was nice watching the slow changing of the leaves while keeping the windows open. I made these Thanksgiving cookies over the weekend with my sister. She really wanted to make the latte cups and pumpkin. (You’ll see these cutters in other photos in this post, haha!)

Cutters are as follows:

Turkey and pumpkin cutters– Kaleidacuts

Floral and leaves–Cut it Out Cutters

Pie and latte–SweetLeigh Printed

Sweater–JH Cookie Co.

Colors (all Americolor): light brown, chocolate brown, midnight, leaf green, crimson, pumpkin, light pink, white.

See the latte, pumpkin, and floral and leaves cutters? Yes, apparently I really like these cutters! The main difference is the pumpkin, as I decorated these with a more floral feel. I also went more pastel in colors. I also added some minis in this set.

Cutters are as follows:

Large pumpkin, minis (raincoat, boot, umbrella, leaf): JH Cookie Co.

Colors (all Americolor): Plum, chocolate brown, blush, peach, white, wedgewood, leaf green.

Okay, last set. This one feels more like a vintage, homey vibe to me. Maybe it’s the truck and gnome. And honestly, you had me at anything with a gnome! I just love the truck cutter. This is the second time I’ve used it in a set and I know there’ll be more to come.

Cutters are as follows:

gnome and acorn–Cut it Out Cutters

plaque–Sweetleigh Printed

truck–JH Cookie Co.

leaf and floral–Kaleidacuts

My Thanksgiving this year will be more low-key. And as I’m thinking about it, I have spent every Thanksgiving (minus one) with my parents and middle sister. I am excited to spend this one with my youngest sister and her family, as well as my aunt and uncle whom I haven’t seen in ages. But also feeling a bit sad. Currently, just feeling it all. (And Covid isn’t really helping matters.)

I wish you and yours a healthy and happy Thanksgiving. xoxo


Thanks for stopping by! I love baking and hope these recipes inspire you to create something wonderful in your kitchen. xoxo
