Kids Friendly Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies

November 14, 2010

My kids are so excited about Thanksgiving this year, and our guest list is growing everyday. I thought I would share a fun cooking activity that the kids love: this Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies recipe. This recipe comes from Pillsbury, and you start with their refrigerated sugar cookie dough. It’s so easy, and your children will have a blast making these. These are also great to take to school to the teachers or share with the class, and they are always a big hit!

Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 12 minutes
Yield: Makes 16 cookies
1 (16.5 ounce) package Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1 (16 ounce) container white or chocolate creamy frosting
1 Candy corn
1 Orange decorating icing
1 White decorating gel
1 Miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Bake cookies as directed on roll. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.

2. Spoon white or chocolate frosting into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut small hole in bottom corner of bag. On each cookie, pipe frosting on outer edge of half of cookie. Arrange candy corn over frosting for feathers.

3. Pipe orange icing onto each cookie to resemble turkey face and/or feet. Use white or orange icing to attach baking bits to turkey face for eyes and draw mouth.

What a cute idea! I've done something similar for Easter, just made eggs instead of turkeys.

So cute! My girls would love making these. Next year I'll have to remember to hide an extra bag of candy corn so we can make some fun treats with them.
