Easy Turkey Cookies

1 Dec

Though I like pecan pie and pumpkin bars as much as the next girl, our Thanksgiving needed a fun, kid-pleasing dessert. I think I had as much fun making these as the kids did eating them.

I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and made regular powdered sugar frosting, though a maple frosting works well for these, too.

Candy Corn (I prefer the “Indian corn” because of the brown color and because they are not AS sweet as regular corn candy; the chocolate also adds just enough of another flavor.)

Mini Chocolate Chips (I have also seen Mini M&Ms or just  frosting for the eyes, which are both nice for color.)

I also sprinkled orange edible glitter above the eyes and used powdered sugar frosting again for the beak and feet.
