Turkey Cookies

Ok before you are grossed out that we are making cookies with turkey as an ingredient, we are not. Instead, we are making cookies that are decorated to look like turkeys. We did this last year and the kids had such a fun time. We are going to attempt to do them again this year. And, when I mentioned them to Alexis' preschool teacher, Ms. Regalado, she said that she would love to do those with the kids this Fri. for their Thanskgiving party. The kids love being able to decorate and 'play' with their food. And they are yummy to eat when you are all done. You can buy premade sugar cookies so you don't have to heat up the house with the oven (being that it is suppose to be 90 degrees today where I live in southern CA that is the option I am going for), you can buy premade dough and just cut it into individual cookies from the tube, or you can be Ms. Suzy Homemaker and make the cookies from scratch. The feet and beak are kinda hard for the kids to do but they can certainly put some frosting down for the feathers and eyes and then stick the candy corn and mini M&Ms down. These did not last long around the house last year and were gobbled up as quickly as they were made.


  1. I was thinking of making these for Rachel's preschool 'feast' on this Thursday...but and beginning to think twice about doing it. LOL.

  2. Those are super cute! Maybe when Aidan can actually eat cookies, I'll make them. otherwise, I'd just be "gobbling" them up myself!!
