I'm always on the look-out for cute things to add pizazz to holiday dessert trays, placesetting favors and bake sales/fundraisers. And these cute little guys caught my eyes several years ago! The recipe calls for using store-bought cookie dough, but I always make the cookies homemade. Either way, they turn out adorable! Happy Thanksgiving! (photo from bing images)

How to Make Cute Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare cookies according to package direstions. (*I make homemade, though.) Cool completely. With a pastry bag (or ziplock baggie snipping corner off), add a small mound of frosting to center of cookie not all the way to the edge. Add almond slices or candy corns (point end-down), into half of outer edge of each cookie for feathers. Place 2 white chocolate chips on each for eyes. With frosting, adhere tiny chocolate chip morsels to white ones for pupils. (*I just changed tips and made them with frosting.) Place on candy corn noses, and pretzel pieces feet. And there you have it! Cute lil' buggers!! :D
    *You can also make a dab of simple frosting, tint it red and make the wattles. Just pipe across top of candy corn and down one side.
