Many, many, many moons ago… before pinterest, before everyone had the internet, and before blogs, my mom dragged me to a cooking class with a woman named Mackie Bobo in Lubbock. In Mackie’s black and white recipe book she gave each person in the class, there was a recipe for these cute Thanksgiving cookies.
For some reason, that’s the only thing I remember from Mackie’s class and now that we have a little bit more kitchen space (!!), I decided to make these cute little turkey cookies to take to Thanksgiving festivities on Thursday.
Beware. It’s sugar overload.
Thanksgiving Cookies – Let’s be Real
Maybe these would be better used as place card holders? I think its a fun project for little ones… since I remember it from my littler days. Let’s be real though; I loved making these cookies today, too! These thanksgiving cookies are ridiculously simple, especially if you buy ready-made sugar cookie dough. I think that is totally acceptable! No one needs to be a hero during Thanksgiving week!!
- 1 package of pre-made sugar cookie dough
- 14oz bag of candy corn
- 16oz container of chocolate frosting
- 1 package of Wilton candy googly-eyes
- Bake cookies according to package. Let cookies cool completely on wire rack.
- Using an icing bag and Wilton Tip #102, pipe a “hair line” for the candy corn. (You can also do this using a knife… but I’m way too messy for that.)
- Press candy corn into icing to make turkey feathers.
- Switch to Wilton Tip #2 and pipe two small dots and affix candy eyes using icing as glue.
- Using Wilton Tip #2, draw a V for the beak and draw two upside down Ys (or forks) for legs.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends!!
