Turkey Cookies

As far back as I remember my mother made these cookies with us and I could not WAIT until Hila Fay was old enough to pass the tradition on to her.  Finally, I could wait no longer!  So, for the first time we attempted to make “Turkey Cookies”.  Sadly my sister-in-law had to work so it was just Gramma, my nephew Matt (affectionately known as Pac-man to me), Hila Fay and myself but we had fun and the results were pretty good.  The cookies are pretty easy to make and a fun tradition for all involved!


Chocolate covered cherries or cream drops

Chocolate covered graham crackers

Fudge Striped Cookies

Chocolate Icing

Candy Corn

The Chocolate Covered Graham Cracker serves as the Turkey’s “base”, the cherry or cream drop as the body, the Fudge Striped Cookie as the tail, the candy corn as the beak and the icing (we’ve found generic icing actually works better) as glue to hold it all together!  I’ll show you some pictures:

Note a couple of things; the “flat” part of the chocolate covered cherry is pointing towards the back, not down. It’s much easier for the Fudge Striped Cookie to stick to it in that position.  Also, we put icing in three places: between the graham cracker & the “drop” (chocolate covered cherry), the striped cookie and “drop” and the beak (not pictured) and “drop”

    1. Thank you very much! I’m so glad you like them! Hila Fay’s name comes from my grandmother & Chuck’s mother-but think long & hard before you choose two strong-willed people to name your child after! Trust me, pick at least one wuss. O_o hehehe
