Turkey Cookies

Note–I am purposely RE-posting today’s blog post. Forgive the previous submission. Moral of the story: Never attempt to write intelligently at 2 am. Sheesh

Don’t you just LOVE my sweet–and I mean SWEET–little Tom Turkey? Don’t you just want to gobble him up? Ha! Gobble.  Get it? That’s a good one.

These little guys would make a great neighbor treat or think how great they’d look on the Thanksgiving table.

Turkey Cookies

Ingredients

Fudge Mallows cookies

Iced Oatmeal cookies

Chocolate frosting

Swedish fish, candy corn and anything else you’d like to use.

You likely don’t need tons of instructions now–but just in case…

Cut the marshmallow cookies in half.

Glue it–with chocolate frosting–marshmallow side down, onto the oatmeal cookie.

Pipe a frosting “turkey body” straight up onto the marshmallow cookie.

Cut the Swedish fish up for feet, wings, beaks, eyes or whatever strikes you.

Give your little “Turkey-Lurkey” a face, beak, feet and a waddle from the decorettes and cut up Swedish Fish.

“Glue” tail feathers onto the back of the same cookies.

The little papooses will love this part…

and be quite proud of…

their little gobblers…

in the end. And rightly so.

  1. I love that the kids could help with these! 🙂 It was fun to have something for them to do that didn’t take loads of preparation and it’s great to see how everyone used the candy differently to decorate!

  2. as another person that attempts to get many things accomplished in the wee hours of the morning–and often up at that hour due to attending a birth… ah, well, I think the red wiggly thing you are referring to is a ‘wattle’ on a turkey or an old woman with drape-y neck skin…. I think we all know what ‘waddle’ means–early, late, with coffee, without, with neon rice krispy treats (wow) or not. Love ya. and the little turkey lerkey’s are a great idea and do look very festive and somehow correct for this time of the year.

  3. Well Chompy didn’t. I wasn’t actually allowed to eat them anyway…but those are my favorite cookies in the whole world–so it was tough.
