Fall "Acorn" Cookies

Fall "Acorn" Cookies-The Unlikely Homeschool

Last year for a little Thanksgiving-themed mother-daughter project, Sweetie Pea and I made these cute "acorn" cookies. We whipped up a big batch and used them as a pre-dinner treat at our feast. We put one or two out at each place setting for guests to enjoy as they waited for their turn in the dinner line.

Acorn Cookies

You will need:
With a pastry piping bag (or a Ziplock bag with a small scissor snip in one corner), pipe a small dollop of frosting onto the bottom side of a Hershey's Kiss. Top with a mini Nilla Wafer. Then, pipe a small dot in the center of the Wafer. Top with a 1/4 inch piece of pretzel to form the stem. Chill completed "acorns" for a few minutes until the frosting hardens a bit. Serve with a smile.


  1. I LOVE these!! My boys will definitely enjoy making them. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Cute idea! I didn't even know they made Mini nilla wafers! I love ideas like this and the boys do too. :)

  3. We made these last year to share at my daughter's Thanksgiving feast at school. It was a great project to make together, and she was so proud to share them. Thanks for the reminder.
