Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you are are getting ready for a wonderful Thanksgiving....full of family, friends, and PIE!

If you're in the mood to whip up some fall cookies to take to the feast, here's a simple idea for you.  This turkey doesn't require a special cutter....it's a combination of a few shapes you probably have already...or can be cut by hand.

This turkey shape idea came from Paper Glitter's free Thanksgiving printables. Printables and kids' coloring books are great places to look for cookie inspiration.

Make your cookies, break out the royal icing along with Americolor food colorings in Super Red, Orange, Chocolate Brown, Egg Yellow, and Super Black.   

Cookie Decorating Recipes You'll Need:

To decorate, outline each shape, then thin royal icing with water, a bit at a time, to the consistency of thick syrup. Fill in the outlines. 

After an hour or more, add the details on the face with piping consistency icing. 

Let the cookies dry uncovered overnight or for 6-8 hours.

Happy Thanksgiving, you guys!  I am thankful for each and every one of you....except for you spammers, but other than that....each and every one. :)

Gobble, gobble!

{ps...to my cousin, Maura, currently in labor with her first little one...we are thinking of you! Can't wait to meet your little turkey!}
