Turkey cookies for Thanksgiving — cookie decorating for Thanksgiving
Next up on my list of Thanksgiving cookie ideas I made for Celebrations… Turkeys! Turkey cookies are kind of necessary for this holiday. I’m always a fan of putting all cookie designs on circle cookies instead of more complicated shapes. Keeps things nice and simple. If turkeys are your thing, check out these turkey donuts, super simple turkey cookies, or this chocolate turkey cake.
how to make turkey cookies
- cookie dough (my go-to cookie recipes)
- royal icing
- circle cookie (about least 3-inches in diameter)
- food coloring
- 5 decorating bags
- 4 couplers
- assorted decorating tips (sizes “2,” “3,” and “4”)
- rubber bands
Roll out chilled cookie dough, cut out circles and bake according to the recipe. Let cool.
Prepare royal icing, divide and tint your colors: Black, brown, red, orange, and yellow. Prepare four decorating bags with couplers and tips, fill with black, red, orange and yellow, and close tightly with rubber bands. Cover and reserve the brown icing.
Pipe an outline of the turkey as shown with the black icing fitted with a size “3” tip. Let the outline set about 15 minutes.
