I found the idea for these turkey cookies on Pinterest. I knew I was going to take a snack to play group. But I wasn't sure if it was going to be the turkey cookies I made last year, the turkey Rice Krispie Treats I made last year or something new. We decided something different would work well, and these are just so cute. You can see the pin here.
I did vary from the directions a little. I found the order of putting them together a little tricky, so this is how we made them:
First the girls helped put the candy corn in the side of the cookie after I put some frosting on it to hold them in place.
I tried to work on them going from left to right while placing them in.
When we finished all of the tails I had them help put the mini Reeses Cup bodies onto the top of the other cookies. First I cut off a sliver so it would stand better.
I found it easier to attach the tails with the body already attached.
Then a Whopper head:
And a candy corn tip beak.
And some gel eyes and frosting wattles.
A flock of turkey cookies to take to play group.
They really enjoyed their sugar fix.
Maybe next year I can find something a little healthier to bring.
