Pilgrim Hat Cookies Directions (One Step at a time)
The very first thing you will want to do is Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set this aside. Beat butter until creamy and add 1 cup white sugar and brown sugar. Beat until blended. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Pour dry ingredients into butter mixture and mix until combined.
Add peanut butter and mix until incorporated. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop out dough and roll into balls. Roll each ball in remaining ¼ cup sugar until completely coated. Place on lined cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes.
After removing cookies from oven, immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each cookie. Let cool completely.
Combine yellow food coloring and premade vanilla icing until desired color is reached. Fill a piping bag or sandwich bag with icing and pipe a circle around each candy topping. Top each cookie with a yellow mini chocolate candy.
