Nutty Turkey Cookies
What's your Take?

My mom has had a tradition for as long as I can remember to make turkey cookies with all the kids at our thanksgiving gatherings.  I always loved it when I was little, now I love seeing my kids eyes light up when they see the candy, cookies and frosting laid out on the table.  The turkey cookies change from year to year, but our love of the tradition never does! 

What you'll need

  • Nutter Butter Cookies
  • Candy Corn
  • Chocolate or Vanilla Frosting
  • Candy Eyes
  • Orange Starburst Candies
  • Heart Sprinkles
  • Fall Leaf Sprinkles

How to make it

  1. Begin by carefully peeling the top part of the cookie away from the bottom, trying to keep peanut butter filling on bottom cookie.  Spread chocolate or vanilla frosting over peanut butter filling and carefully place candy corn into frosting around the top half of the cookie.  Then gently press the top cookie back on, over the candy corn.  

  2. Cut beak shape from starburst candies and secure to cookie using a dab of frosting.  Secure candy eyes and leaf sprinkle feet in the same manor.  Press heart sprinkle onto starburst candy beak to create the turkey's waddle.  Admire your cute turkey, and then devour him!
