Turkey Cookies

Turkey shaped cookies are a fun and festive way to incorporate a dessert other than pie into your Thanksgiving feast. These easy no-bake cookies are also a great activity for the kids.


42 cookies

Recipe from

Southern Living


1 (16-ounce) package cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
1/4 cup red cinnamon candies
1 1/4 cups malted milk balls
1 (16-ounce) container ready-to-spread chocolate frosting
1 (9 1/2-ounce) package candy corn


Separate each cookie carefully, leaving cream filling on one side; set cookie halves without filling aside.

Make a turkey body by attaching a cinnamon candy (for turkey head) to each malted milk ball (turkey body) with a dab of chocolate frosting. Attach a turkey body to center of each cookie half with cream filling using a dab of chocolate frosting.

Spread chocolate frosting on the inside of each cookie half that does not have cream filling. For the turkey tail, arrange candy corn on chocolate-frosting cookies with wide end of candy along outer edge. Attach each turkey tail behind a turkey body using chocolate frosting. Store assembled turkeys in the refrigerator.
