Turkey Tradition

This post is very near and dear to my heart. I can't even remember the first time I made these "turkey" cookies, but I know that it was when I was a little girl. It was something that my mom and I made as Thanksgiving gifts or for place settings over the years.  There is not a Thanksgiving that doesn't go by, that I can't make at least one of these and I think of my mom every time.

Here is what you will need: (cost me less than $10 for everything!)

  • Oatmeal Cookies
  • Fudge Striped Cookies
  • Chocolate Covered Cherries
  • Candy Corn
  • Chocolate Icing
The oatmeal cookie is the base for your turkey.

You will need to cut right below the hole on the fudge striped cookie. 

Generous amounts of icing is best to secure everything in place.  

The chocolate covered cherry is the body. The fudge striped cookie goes right behind the body to become the feathers.

Finish it off with a candy corn!

Perfect for decorating the Thanksgiving Day table!

~Happy Thanksgiving~

  1. My Mom never made these, they are so cute. I never heard of a Turkey Cookie before. I have great memories of my Mom during the holidays. But she is been gone for a while. But I always feel close to her when I do some of the things we did when I was little, so I can so relate. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and thanks so much for sharing at Sunday's Best.

  2. Hi Kristy, these are so adorable. I bet everyone was thrilled to have them for Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
