Special Edition: Turkey Cookies

It’s almost Thanksgiving. Which means it’s time to gain 10 lbs. Kidding (kind of) but seriously, with family gatherings and hungry co-workers galore, wow them this year with something other than the traditional pumpkin pie … try this easy and fun Thanksgiving Turkey Cookie recipe!!


***Recipe adjusted to the way I made them (click link above to see original recipe)

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1 container (16 oz) chocolate creamy frosting (I used tube frosting)
Candy corn
Orange decorating icing
Black decorating gel
1 bag (12 oz) Nestle Toll House Mini Morsels


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Bake cookies as directed on roll. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  2. Spoon chocolate frosting into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut small hole in bottom corner of bag. I opted for tube frosting because I’m lazy. On each cookie, pipe frosting on outer edge of half of cookie. Arrange candy corn over frosting for feathers. 
  3. Place two dots of black decorating gel on the cookies and attach mini chocolate chips for eyes. 
  4. Pipe orange icing onto each cookie to resemble turkey nose and feet. 
  5. Enjoy!  



About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.
