Rerun Article: Pie in a Glass and Turkeys?! Oh My!

Thanksgiving centers around food . . . and so does today's article! Read on to learn from Lizzy the Lizard how to bake some yummy Thanksgiving-themed treats!
Hey there everyone! Lizzy here! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and here's a recipe that will definitely make your mouth water . . . if you like pumpkin pie. It's practically like a smoothie!
  1. Gather 15-ounce can pumpkin, if you can't get a fresher form of it (not pumpkin pie mix!)
  2. 12-ounce can evaporated milk
  3. 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
  4. ¼ cup of sugar
  5. ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  6. whipped cream
  7. cinnamon
Here's what needs to be done to create this treat:
  1. First pour the canned pumpkin and evaporated milk into a bowl
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight
  3. Second, combine pumpkin, milk, yogurt, sugar, and spice into a blender
  4. Blend until smooth
  5. Then pour into a cup
  6. Lastly, top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
Wait, don't go yet! This lizard's got another recipe and this is a fun one for kids. TURKEYS!
  1. Gather 4 tablespoons (½ stick) of butter
  2. 10-ounce bag of marshmallows
  3. 6 cups of Rice Krispies
  4. Chocolate sandwich cookies (you can use Oreo cookies if you like)
  5. Chocolate frosting
  6. And candy corn.
First . . .:
  1. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large saucepan
  2. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted
  3. Remove the pan from heat and stir in cereal
  4. Let cool for 10 minutes
  5. While the mixture is cooling, twist apart the cookies and removing the filling (this is easier if the cookies are warm)
  6. Now you butter you're hands and shape the gooey cereal into 1 ½ -inch balls
  7. Next, make the tail by frosting the inside of the cookie half and pressing three candies into the frosting to make a fan shape
  8. Create the body by frosting the other cookie half and sticking it to the bottom of the Rice Krispie ball
  9. Add a little frosting below the candy corn and stick the tail onto the body
  10. Then stick another corn on the front of the Rice Krispie ball to make a head
You can use them to decorate the table and after dinner you can gobble them up! Happy Thanksgiving from Lizzy the Lizard!
