Super Simple Turkey Cookies
If you have been following along then, you know that I am doing a little something different for Thanksgiving cookies this year. I have decided to make ten different turkey cookies with ten different cookie cutters. The plan was to do it in ten days but, hey, life happens and it is taking me longer than I had planned. It will be okay as long as I keep waddling along. Anyway, here is turkey #7 a few super simple turkey cookies that are made with a plaque cookie cutter. You can also use a flower or a cloud cutter.
I like this cookie because you can make them pretty fast. Since the feathers are not touching, it really reduces the drying time and you have to love that!
Supplies for Super Simple Turkey Cookies:
Large Scalloped Oval Cookie Cutter I purchased mine at Karen’s Cookies but they are no longer in business. So this flower cutter from The Cookie Cutter Company will work if you stretch it out.
Food Safe Marker
These cookies are so easy to decorate that I don’t really need to give any instructions for them.
To begin, use a food-safe marker (any color) to make the body of the turkey in the center of the cookie.
Next, outline and feathers any color you chose.
Flood the feathers.
Pipe the feet and legs with the orange icing.
Let it dry for several hours.
Outline and flood the turkey’s body with the brown icing.
While the icing is wet, and the candy eyes. I used one large one and one small one to give them the “Oh NO!” look.
Let the cookie dry for a few hours and add the orange beak.
Let the nose dry for several hours and pipe the snood.
There you go. Super simple turkey cookies for Thanksgiving.
