Thanksgiving Cookies

Happy Thanks giving!!

We saw these cute turkey cookies on Nick Jr. Our four year olds knew right away that they had to make these.

We used refrigerated sugar cookie dough. We traced our four year olds hand (use your smallest child's hand, they got huge in the oven) on construction paper. Cut it out and use it as a pattern for the cookies. We used a bamboo skewer to cut out the dough.

We also made some leaf shaped cookies as well.

Next we made a very simple frosting just using powdered sugar and water. For the brown icing we added vanilla extract and cinnamon (about a tsp. of each) We made the frosting slightly runny and used new paint brushes to paint on the frosting! We used our last few pieces of Halloween candy corn for beaks for the turkeys.

So fun painting cookies!

Some of the turkeys ended up a little abstract.

Our fall leaf cookies turned out beautiful as well!
Pin It!
