A friend of mine is having a party in which she is combining Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas all together. I have no idea what type of cookies to make. Does anyone have any ideas?

Do you want all 3 holidays on one cookie or will each cookie have it's own holiday theme?

You could do a Witch Hat with a thanksgiving buckle using christmas colors?


Hmmm.....You could do a green Christmas tree with Halloween decorations (pumpkin, moon) and put a turkey at the top instead of a star?

Pumpkins were the first thing that came to my mind. You could even make some of them in to jack-o-laterns.

Yes, she wants me to come up with a cookie that will depict all three holidays. Does anyone have any other ideas?

u could have a turkey with cuts on it or a little blood with a santa hat. Or a black cat wrapped in christmas lights with pumpkins or gourds by its feet

Stars? Or Bows? In red, green, yellow, orange?
Wrapped Packages in same colors?
Apples? Apples seem appropriate for all--bobbing for apples, apple pie, And they're red and green!
Turkeys or cats or any creature in santa and witch and Pilgrim hats?

I like this idea. It covers everything, and you could use the Halloween decorative quinns and a RI or candy molded mini Turkey in place of the star.

You could aslo do a regualr pumpkin with a mask ( like Zorro or Lone Ranger) and holiday lights. That would be easy 4 colors of icing ( orange, green leaf, black mask, and black lightcord,brown for stem,) and some Christmas Light quinns. Then you would only be cutting out a pumpkin shape, and adding just the detail to it.

Christmas lights? They make quins (sprinkles) that look like them. Get a bucketful and make things easier on yourself.

I like the thought of combining them onto one cookie.

How about a TGIF black cat hanging from a Christmas wreath? Or the flying witch splattering into a Christmas tree? Or a turkey mummy chasing holding the axe?

This is great! It made me laugh, but you could do these on wafer paper, and a rectangle cookie and make it look like a postcard. Where the address goes just have it say Happy Holidays!

As I am a beginner, I would go with something easy - a round cookie to represent a moon and would add a shadow of a Christmas tree top with a star and a turkey.

This would be pretty labor-intensive, but what about a large circle cookie that is cut into three pieces (like a pie chart with 33.3% in each piece of pie) and having a scene from each holiday in each third? Maybe even something like the same house or front yard, decorated three different ways?

Oh, IMHO, this is the best idea so far!!! A turkey body with a jack-o-lantern head, wearing a Santa cap. I'd love to see that on a cookie!
