Here are the thanksgiving cookies I made for my family. Hope everyone had a good day with friends, family, and great food!
I did both oak and maple leaves. I used red and pale green (leftover colors from some cookies that will be on the next post), and yellow and orange.
For the turkeys I used a wet-on-wet icing method and a toothpick to create the colorful feathers.
After letting the icing dry a bit, I added the beak, feet, and wattle. (I had to ask my father-in-law what that red thing is called!)
Thanksgiving morning when the cookies were nice and dry, I used my new food color markers to draw on the eyes.
