I know there are a lot of ideas for cookie & candy turkey treats. This is one that I have use for at least 30 years.

  • 2 wafer cookies (I used vanilla wafers)
  • 1 large gumdrop
  • 5 candy corns
  • 1 red hot or red M & M
  • 2 chocolate chips or 1 brown M & M cut in half
  • frosting

To assemble:
Put frosting on 1 cookie and add gumdrop. This will be the body.
With frosting to secure, add red candy (wattle) and brown candy (eyes).
On the 2nd cookie spread frosting and add candy corns.
These will be the feathers.
Attach the two cookies together with frosting as shown in the photograph
As the frosting hardens the turkey will become more secure.
