With fall and Thanksgiving coming up, it’s a great time to start baking with the kids.

Of course, if you want something more substantial, we recommend our pumpkin pie cake.
Turkey cookies characteristics
Essentially, the key to turkey ingredients is to have a cookie that is the turkey’s body and then some type of confectionery, candy, or addition that makes the turkey feathers. Plus, of course, something to bind them together.
And that’s it.
Fall and harvest themed turkey cookies everyone everyone will love.
Green eyed turkeys... sign me up! These involve some candy corn and icing fun.
Now, Reese's will really make this turkey pop. Make sure the heat isn't on too high or these puppies will melt!
These cookies use chocolate icing to give the turkey's body color and would be fun to make at a cookie decorating party as well!
Candy corn again, can't make the turkey cookies without them clearly, but these use simple sugar cookies (or you could substitute spice cookies, snicker doodles, etc.) to decorate the turkey.
Love a good Milano cookie? Why not use your fave store bought cookies to give the turkey a body. Also, these eyes, aren't they cute!

Nutter butters... oh man. As if we weren't spoiled enough with all of our Thanksgiving yummy treats these days. NOW we're adding some nutter butters. Gather the nutter butters, Reese's, and turkey decorations to make these turkey cookies.
These turkey cookie pops would be excellent for neighbor gifts, party favors, or even to decorate a beautiful table for your Thanksgiving feasts. This recipe uses both vanilla and chocolate oreos.

Chocolate frosting is the hero here. Makes them pretty and tasty! Also instead of candy corn, as most other cookies used, these have almond slices. So fun!
