Well here they are. The last turkeys in my 10 turkey series. Meet the Tom Turkey cookies.

Tom Turkey Cookies - Easy Sugar Cookies decorated with Royal Icing www.thebearfootbaker.comWhen I started this challenge, I had a few rules I set for myself. I knew what I wanted to show that it is possible to use the one set of icing colors, ten different cookie cutters and your imagination to make some fun cute turkeys cookies. I didn’t change the cookie cutters in any way. I didn’t cut, trim or reshape them. I made the design work within each specific cookie cutter. I used the same icing colors on all of the turkeys. I tried to do it in ten days but, hey, life happens and some times things take a bit longer.

Before we move on, I want you to look at the Tom Turkey cookies in the photo above. Look at the first bird. Imagine it with green icing. Doesn’t it look like the Grinch? There is another idea for this cookie cutter.
