Turkey Cookies with an Acorn Cutter
I am ready for Thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite holidays because it’s a wonderful time for family to get together and hang out, catch up on each others lives, play a little backyard football and eat all the turkey you can stand. I do enjoy a good game of football as long as I don’t get tackled. Although that would make for a memorable holiday. I chose to make holiday memories with cookies instead. The large turkey you have to wake up at 3 am to make may have a little competition if you if you make these easy turkey cookies by using an acorn cutter.
I know you have probably seen these turkey cookies before but I wanted to make them again because they have inspired me to make several turkey cookies with different cookie cutters. During the next couple of weeks, I will share 10 turkeys with 10 different cookie cutters you probably have in your cabinet. Since this is the guy who inspired me to use different cutters, I though he needed his own tutorial.
Supplies for Turkey Cookies made with an Acorn Cookie Cutter:
- 15 Second Icing in the following colors:
4 mm Edible Black Pearls
Paint brush and brown food gel color or a brown edible food safe marker
Yellow or Orange Food Safe Marker
Begin by outlining and flooding the turkeys head with the brown icing and let it dry completely.
Next, outline and flood the beak with the yellow icing and let it dry completely.
Then, flood one eye with the white icing and add a 4 mm bead and let it dry for about 20 minutes. Waiting will create dinension.
Repeat with the other eye.
Next, add the mouth and the nose by painting or drawing them on the beak. If you draw it, make sure the yellow icing is completely dry or you could polk a hole in the icing.
Finish up the face by piping the snood with the red icing. You can make it as large or small as you want.
Look at these poor little turkey cookies. They look scared to death! I think they know what the future holds for them. They have heard the saying, “Gobble ’till ya wobble” and they know it doesn’t just apply to the main dish. I bet these guys will be the first to disappear off the dinner table.
Remember to come back and see what other cutters can be used for turkey cookies.
