Nutter Butter Turkey Cookies

It has been a tradition for as long as I can remember to make turkey cookies with my mom and all the little kids at our Thanksgiving festivities. We make a different one each year and it always amazed me the ideas she came up with – every year, a new turkey creation. I remember loving this activity when I was little, now I love watching my kid’s eyes light up when they see the candy, cookies and frosting laid out on the table. While the turkey ingredients and designs change from year to year, our love of this tradition never has! This Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie is was of my favorites.

Easy Turkey Cookies

Making these Nutter Butter Turkey Cookies could not be any easier to make! Here is how –

  1. Grab some Nutter Butter Cookies and take them apart, trying to get as much of the peanut butter filling on one side as possible.
  2. Stick 5 candy corn candies into the peanut butter to make your turkey feathers. Replace the other cookie so it sits on top of the candy corn. TIP – If you notice the cookie not sticking together very easily, add some frosting to the cookie and gently press it down.
  3. Now it is time to decorate the face! Cut a triangle from one corner of the orange Starburst. Add some frosting to the back side and secure it to the face of the cookie where the beak should be. Add a small line of red frosting right next to the beak for the turkey’s waddle. Secure 2 candy eyes with frosting, and place 2 orange flower sprinkles at the bottom of the cookie to be the turkey’s feet.

Simple and cute- what’s not to love?
