Turkey Cookies

Last year I wanted the girls to be able to make something to take to our Thanksgiving dinner, so we made these cute little turkey cookies! I have seen a couple variations of these on pinterest, but here is what we did. 


Nutter Butters
Regular size Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Icing (we used decorators icing, but any icing that stays put will work)
mini M&Ms

Start by placing icing on the back of your peanut butter cup and sticking it to a Nutter Butter.  Then using more icing to hold them in place stand both the Nutter Butter and peanut butter cup up on an Oreo.
I had Nathan do a lot of the icing, so I could take pictures.
Then draw on the faces with icing.  It is pretty much just making a fat T with the icing, so you can add eyes, a beak, and a waddle (the little hanging down thingy).

Add 2 mini M&Ms for eyes, an orange jelly bean for the beak, and a red jelly bean for the waddle.  Then squirt icing across the top of the peanut butter cup, so you can add jelly beans for feathers. Each of ours had five feathers.  We also added two yellow jelly beans at the bottom of the Nutter Butter for feet.  The girls got to choose all the M&Ms and jellybeans we used.

Then you have cute little turkey cookies for your Thanksgiving get together!

The girls were pretty happy with their turkeys!

And just for fun here is cute, little baby Eli on his first Thanksgiving!
