Making Pilgrim Hats

IMG_2357eThursday was Maisie’s last day of school before Thanksgiving break and all the children in Maisie’s class joined together with the fourth grade and kindergarten class to share a Thanksgiving feast.  Last year Maisie and I made Pilgrim hats for her class and they were a huge hit so we decided to make them again this year for all the children attending the feast. 

IMG_2361eMaisie did a good job dipping the marshmallow in the chocolate and then getting it onto the cookie.  Once the chocolate set I piped on the buckle.

IMG_4192[2]This picture is from last year because by the time I did the piping it was late at night and I just totally forgot to take a picture but trust me, this years hats looked exactly like these and the children loved them as much this year as they did last year.  

It’s funny, when I went back to last years post to snag the picture of the finished hats I saw the pictures of Maisie making them last year and her expressions in the photos are oh-so similar.  Also, other than when she’s at gymnastics, Maisie almost never wears her hair in a ponytail yet both times that she’s made these hats her hair has been pulled back. 

IMG_4177[2] (1)Thankfully the pink unibrow and the one sided heavily applied make-up wasn’t repeated this year.  I find it funny to see how similar last years photos are to this years pictures.


A big thank you to everyone who commented and emailed suggestions, links and well wishes in helping me find wheat, milk and egg free foods for my girl.  I am beginning to find my way and am less freaked out now that I am finding food substitutions for many of her favorites.  We are finding new foods, I have found many recipes and hopefully soon we’ll be in the groove and it will be easy…but this may be our last year of making these Pilgrim hats…oh well.

New recipe posted over on Cook Lisa Cook and though not part of Maisie’s new diet, these Apple Dumplings are sure easy to make and delicious.  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.
