You should have seen my son’s face when I said I was going to make turkey cookies for his school’s Thanksgiving “feast.”
I had to assure him that the cookies were made to look like turkeys, not made out of turkeys.
Although, cookies made from turkey… hmmm…
Turkey Cookies (fromPillsbury.com)
- Your favorite sugar cookie recipe (I used this one)
- candy corn
- chocolate frosting
- orange and black decorating frosting or gels
- Prepare sugar cookies as directed. When cool, spread a little bit of frosting on each cookie in an arch at the top. Gently press candy corn on top of the frosting, as shown.
- Using the decorating gels, give your turkeys eyes, beaks, and feet.
- Let dry.
These cookies looked so cute when they were finished that my kids had a good 20-minute argument over why it is or isn’t unfair that only Curious George got to have one.
In keeping with the turkey theme, I’d like to share a picture that my Sarah Crewe drew when she was five years old.
It’s a picture of a turkey at the stove, cooking dinner. And another turkey handing the chef a pair of um… well, human legs.
Don’t ask why or how a five-year-old thought of this. I don’t like to go there.
But I think it’s funny.
