Bite-Sized Turkey Cookies


  • Flower medley confetti sprinkles
  • Light cocoa candy melts
  • Candy corn
  • Red licorice lace
  • Black food coloring pen
  • Light corn syrup
  • Toothpicks

Find the cookie cutter, decorating bag, coupler, decorating tip, confetti sprinkles and candy melts at a craft store. For food coloring I suggest Americolor soft gel pastes (any fall color like Chocolate Brown) and Americolor Black Gourmet Writer. For the red licorice lace, Twizzlers Pull N’ Peel candy works well.

    How to make it 

  • 1

    Prepare cookie dough according to recipe. Roll out chilled dough and cut out two circles for each turkey. Bake according to recipe and let cool completely. Prepare frosting according to recipe. Tint desired color and prepare a decorating bag with a coupler and size “5” tip. Fill bag with frosting and tie closed tightly with a rubber band. Pipe and fill a circle of frosting on the back of a cookie and top with another cookie.

    Insert five jumbo confetti sprinkles halfway into the frosting for the feathers and two flower medley sprinkles for the feet. For the turkey face: cut off the yellow end of a candy corn. Place a dab of corn syrup on the cut side of the yellow candy corn piece using the toothpick and adhere to the center of a candy melt (the top, not the flat side of the candy melt). Snip a piece of red licorice lace, dab some corn syrup on the lace with your finger and adhere to the candy melt next to the candy corn piece. Draw two black eyes with the food coloring pen. Adhere the flat side of the candy melt to the sandwich cookie with a dab of piped frosting.
