Every year since I can remember, my mom has been making these adorable Turkey Cookies.
She sets them at each place setting.
And often, it’s the first thing I eat!
I asked permission to share them here so you can all enjoy this fun tradition, too!
Here’s what you need to make one Turkey Cookie:
|Fudge Stripe Cookies, Rolos, Gummy Lifesavers, Candy Corn, and chocolate frosting|
Take one Fudge Stripe Cookie and lay it with it’s stripes vertical.
Using some frosting, “glue” one Gummy Lifesaver at the bottom.
“Glue” your second Gummy Lifesaver on top with a little more frosting.
Unwrap your Rolo and frost the top. “Glue” it to the bottom of the lifesavers.
Finally, “glue” a candy corn on upside down for the turkey’s face/beak.
Make some more and lay them all on a cookie sheet to dry.
Once the frosting hardens a little, you can stand them up!
I just LOVE these.
Almost as much as I LOVE my mom!
Thanks for starting this Thanksgiving tradition, mom…
I know Little Bug will have fun helping me make these some day!
I’d love to hear some of YOUR Thanksgiving traditions, too – maybe we’ll adopt them as our own!
