This little cookie has become a yearly tradition. They couldn't be simpler and I hope you get a chance to make them. They have made it onto my Menu Plan for the week.
Start with your favorite sugar cookie (homemade or store bought) and bake them as directed. We get a little tube of orange, gel icing from the grocery store. You could also make your own royal icing, tint it and place it in a plastic bag with the corner snipped off to make your own piping bag.
Make a line of icing along the top and add candy corn feathers for the turkey's tail. Use icing to attach two M&M candies and give them little dots on top for eyes. The dot placement can help make a whimsical turkey gazing off into the distance, too! Use some more icing to create a beak and legs for your new little friend.
I hope you like these cute little cookies and that they are a fun addition to you fall baking.
