 Canadian Thanksgiving just past and to help the kids celebrate the Friday before the weekend at school, we made Oreo turkeys and pumpkin sugar cookies.

I had seen the Oreo turkey cuteness on so many blogs this year and last year that I really wanted to make them, but wasn't sure if it was a good idea to have Oreos in the house. I will seriously eat the whole box myself, no problem!   Shocked

Turns out I needed almost all of the cookies for the turkeys anyway!

Essentially, you just take a double stuffed Oreo, and poke about 5 pieces of candy corn in the top. Then poke two broken pretzel pieces in the bottom. Voila! Now your turkey has feathers and feet! I have seen some tutorials use a Malteaser or a chocolate covered mini marshmallow or something else small and brownish for the turkey's head. I just used a serious dollop of brown royal icing, because I had a bunch left over from sugar cookie decorating. Then I used a little white royal icing for eyeballs and little blue and green sprinkles for pupils, yes I used a tweezer. Not that I'm at all obsessive when I'm playing in the kitchen. Ahem.

The sugar cookies are very standard, as is the royal icing. It was really just a matter of getting comfortable with how it comes together.

2 - 3 cups confectioners sugar, unsifted
2 large egg whites
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp almond extract, optional

Beat the egg whites with the lemon juice, sift in the sugar and mix till smooth. Add almond if you feel the need but it's great without. Use more sugar for thicker border frosting, thinner for flooding and tah-dah!

Your oreo turkeys are super awesome! I've never heard of that before.

Oh my goodness! I work at an after school program and these would be wonderful little gifts for my co-orkers or some of the more awesome faculty. I would give it to the kids, but there's about 120 of them and that is WAY too much sprinkle poking. Great job!

Art made science her bitch.

Wow! These are great. I know what you mean about the royal icing being a royal pain until you get comfortable. I find it tastes like crap though so for my sugar cookies I use this recipe:     
    * 1 cup confectioners' sugar
    * 2 teaspoons milk
    * 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
    * 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    * assorted food coloring

Love the turkeys! I think I'll make some for my step daughter's class when we get a little closer to Thanksgiving.
