Cute Turkey Cookies by thebearfootbaker.comBegin by drawing the turkey body on the cookie. It is shaped like a peanut.
Then, pipe an outline for the feathers in different colors.
Next, pipe the legs and the feet with the orange icing. You can add dots for the toes if you would like.

Cute Turkey Cookies by www.thebearfootbaker.comAfter you outline the feathers you are ready to flood them but first, I want to talk a little about the wet on wet technique. Wet on wet means you add icing to a wet icing and then you can make designs by pulling a toothpick or a boo boo stick through it. I usually work one section at a time so the icing doesn’t dry.
So, let’s do this. Flood the first feather with the red icing. Pipe some brown lines across the red icing.
Then, pull a toothpick from the top of the feather to the bottom of the feather. When you reach the bottom, it will look like a feather.
Cute Turkey Cookies www.thebearfootbaker.comRepeat the previous steps for all colors of the feathers. Cute Turkey Cookies with thebearfootbaker.comDon’t they look cute? You can admire your work for a little while because they need to dry completely before you add the turkey body.Cute Turkey Cookies via thebearfootbaker.comOnce the feathers and feet are dry, pipe the little peanut body brown.
Then, add a orange chocolate covered sunflower seed for the beak.
Then add 2-4 mm edible pearls for the eyes.

Cute Turkey Cookies via www.thebearfootbaker.comIf you notice, I didn’t add the snood to these cookies. Once I got to the final step, I liked it without the snood. You can add one if you want because hey, it is your cute turkey cookie and you can make it any way you want!

Only two turkeys left! I am excited to share them with you but, I am going to be sad when this turkey challenge is over.
