Thanksgiving is only 10 days away so I am declaring this as Turkey Week on my blog! This week I am going to post a different turkey cookie recipe each day and at the end of the week you can vote which one is your favorite.
Turkey #1 is one that I made a couple years ago at a MOMS Club function. Just bake and decorate some pre-made sugar cookie dough and voila you have a cute turkey to serve at your upcoming Thanksgiving dinner.
Turkey #1 - The Sugar Turkey
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1 container (16 oz) chocolate creamy frosting
Orange decorating icing (I only had red.)
Black decorating gel
Heat oven to 350°F. Bake cookies as directed on roll. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
Spoon chocolate frosting into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut small hole in bottom corner of bag. On each cookie, pipe frosting on outer edge of half of cookie. Arrange candy corn over frosting for feathers.
Pipe orange icing onto each cookie to resemble turkey face and feet. Use orange icing to attach baking bits to turkey face for eyes. Pipe black gel on baking bits for centers of eyes.
