Thanksgiving is next week! Can you believe it? It is time to gather with family and friends and enjoy amazing food. Speaking of food, did you know that here in the south we call our stuffing dressing? I have never once referred to it as stuffing or stuffed my dressing inside any part of a turkey before. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying anything bad about stuffing. I prefer to stick to what I know when I am feeding a large group of hungry people.
So today I decided to share a little “southern tradition” with you. I made turkey and dressing cookies. Well, they are actually chevron turkey cookies that are “dressed” for Thanksgiving.
Supplies for Chevron Turkey Cookies:
15 Second Icing in the following colors
There is a secret to making these turkeys and I want to tell you all about it. The secret is stencils from an Etsy shop called The CookieCountess. They make the tails seem effortless. These stencils are my new favorites and you can get them here and here. Seriously, when you look at them don’t you get a million ideas?
Pipe 2 circles with a #2 tip and let it dry for a few minutes. Then pipe a beak.
I decided to make the turkey body on the flower and add an acorn for the head. I like how it turned out. You get the look of 2 cookies without the bulk.
Stencil the tails. If you want to see awesome tips on how to stencil cookies then click here.
- For the boy turkey, pipe an oval-ish body on the bottom center of the flower.
- Next add some icing to the back of the acorn and place it on the tail overlapping the top of the body.
- Now, pipe the face and add the royal icing eyes.
- Next add the center fo the tie and let it dry for a few minutes.
- Add the red thing on his nose.
