It’s Time to Talk Turkey…


It’s Thanksgiving morning and you’re in need of a quick and fun contribution. Look no further, because this creative, turkey sugar cookie recipe is sure to be a hit on the dessert table.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz refrigerated cookie dough
  • 3 (8 oz) containers of orange, yellow and red frosting
  • 1 (8 oz) bag peanut butter cups
  • Orange and red decorating gel
  • Mini candy eyeballs

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven according to cookie dough package instructions and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the dough into ¼ thick slices and bake them for 10 minutes, or as directed on the cookie dough packaging.
  3. Once cooled, pipe a bit of frosting on the top of the peanut butter cup and stick it to the cookie. Dot some frosting “feathers” around the peanut butter cup “body” in yellow, orange and red. Next, apply a little dollop of frosting to the back of the candy eyeballs and apply to the peanut butter cup “body”. Give your little guy some feet, with orange decorating gel, and a “beak” with red decorating gel. 

Turkeys of a feather flock together, right? Share these cookies with friends or gobble-gobble them up yourself.
