  1. Turkey Sugar Cookies
  2. To start you need to make some cut out cookie dough. I have a great recipe here, however you can store bought just as easily. I won't tell.
  3. Cut out cookie recipe
  4. Once you have your dough you need to roll it out till it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Then using a 2 inch round cookie cutter, you cut out as many circles as you can.
  6. Place the cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake according to your recipe.
  7. Once your cookies have cooled is where the real fun starts.
  8. Using some store bought orange icing or royal icing make a 1.5 inch arch at the top of the cookie.
  9. Then place 7-8 candy corns along the top. Make sure to work quickly, as the icing will harden.
  10. Then use a little dab of the icing to hold on to each eye. Make sure to place the eyes up close to the feathers.
  11. Then using orange icing make an inverted "V" for the nose.
  12. Finally using the same orange icing make turkey feet.
  13. Let the Turkeys sit till the icing sets and then stack and store.
