Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies

Thanksgiving desserts -Easy Thanksgiving Turkey cookies

So it is already a week before Thanksgiving.  I am in the process of my tasks that I mentioned in my countdown post.  Today I want to share with you an easy cookie tutorial for Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies.  These are made with pre-made sugar cookie dough to save time, but no one has to know. Of course you can make these with a from scratch sugar cookie recipe as well. But this time of year, I am always looking for time-saving shortcuts.

Easy Dessert – Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies

I also used these cute little eyeballs and some candy corn (which is on clearance right now).


I rolled the dough out and used a scalloped round cookie cutter to form the cookies.



I baked the cookies as directed.  Once cooled I used tinted buttercream frosting to make swirly circles on the cookies.


After completing the larger circles I made a round circle in the middle of the cookie.


Then I added a candy corn for the nose and these cute little eyeballs.

And there you have it!  These would be cute as little parting favors or dessert at Thanksgiving.





For an easy Thanksgiving dessert idea - these Thanksgiving Turkey cookies are made from a refrigerated dough! Super easy!I think these will be cute on the dessert table.  What dessert do you like to eat at Thanksgiving?



I’m sharing this at the Hungry Little Girl link party and handmade projects
