One of the things we like to do is start planning our Thanksgiving table, menu, and decorations early. This way, we can spend more time with our friends and family on the actual day. The anticipation and planning of the day are often one of the highlights of the holiday. We start “talking turkey” well before the actual day. This even applies to our cookies. We make them a couple of weeks in advance, seal them in a ziplock bag, and place them in the freezer. When we want them, we pull them out and allow them to come to room temperature before serving them on a platter or cookie jar. This Thanksgiving, we are so excited to have a chance to catch up with friends and family. We are looking forward to sitting down with a cup of coffee and a cookie and hearing what everyone has been up to lately. These Talk Turkey to Me Cookies are sure to be a conversation starter.
