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 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 cut by hand. 
I used a flower cutter, a small circle, and hand-cut a small rectangle.  A video of the process of putting them all together is on University of Cookie.
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.   Have fun!
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!}

  1. I loved these little guys when I first saw them on UofC! I never get tired of looking at your cookies. Just popped in to wish you and your family a lovely, blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. We've already celebrated ours in Canada but I want to say how grateful I am to have *met* you through blogging. You are a continuing source of inspiration, and great advice for me. Thank you.

  17. Oh my goodness Bridget! I just signed onto my computer, have not been online in a few days due to my first chemo treatment on Tuesday. Finally feeling a bit better and the "call of email" lured me to sign on.
    SHOCK and UTTER AMAZEMENT to see an email from YOU letting me know that I had WON THE RED KITCHEN AID!! I never win anything!!! I guess I can't say that anymore, can I? :) Thanks SO very much to you and your blog. You have inspired my cookie making for many years, and I will think of you EVERY time I turn her on. I'm sooo excited that I don't even remember what I named her...but I will go back and check the comments. I WILL kick cancer's butt (again) and do it this time with the help of a cookie blogging friend!
    Have a wonderful and joyous holiday season.

  18. Gracias por las explicaciones. Yo no tengo cortador con forma de pavo y, ahora, ya sé como hacer tan simpáticas galletas.

    Muchas gracias.

    Un besote, mi solete.

  19. Those are pretty cute as are the little brown one's below. These would work really well in France b/c we don't have anything like these at parties!

    Not sure how well they would compete with beautiful millefilles or opera cakes but they are a really cute idea. Maybe you could even use them as name holders (if you wrote guests names on them) on top of napkins. I have a blog about food, recipes, expat life in France and more recently Champagne trips!
