So what do you think? Have we been doing it up, Thanksgiving style? (Maybe not if you're a grown up. But we don't really have one of those in our house.) =o) But my kids have loved all the fun treats we've made so far. We tried our first Turkey Cookie. Then we sugar-ed it up a little and made another Turkey Cookie. Here's version three.
We found two great turkey cookie recipes that were similar. Pinterest had one version. It wasn't linked to a page, unfortunately, so I can't give someone credit. Then Betty Crocker did their version with chocolate frosting all over the cookie. I liked both, but for me, covered in chocolate frosting was the clincher. I mean seriously! Chocolate frosting!
The kids had so much fun making these. We had some friends over and went to my school for a day of crafts and fun. This was the perfect "craft" for them.
We lined up all of our supplies:
* sugar cookies
* chocolate frosting
* candy corn
* orange cookie frosting
* candy eyes
And then they all went to work. There was some serious concentrating going on here.
And lots of snacking.
They were pretty proud of their creations.
And super excited to eat them. They kept asking "are you done taking pictures yet?"
They turned out pretty cool we thought.
Of course my favorite to eat was the one covered in chocolate frosting =o)
My daughter (who doesn't like chocolate) was so proud of her turkeys. What do you think?
She said they were alien turkeys =o)
I can harldy believe Thanksgiving is almost here! Yikes!
