Premade sugar cookie dough or your own recipe

Candy corn (if wanted)

Royal Icing

  • 3 T Meringue Powder
  • 1 lb confectioners’ sugar
  • 5-6 T lukewarm water
  1. Make sure all utensils are grease free
  2. Place sugar and meringue in a bowl add water and mix 7-10 mins at a low-med speed until icing loses its sheen. To prevent drying, be sure to cover the bowl with a damp cloth while working with icing.
  3. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. To reuse, beat on low speed to restore to original texture.

  1. Preheat oven according to cookie instructions. Trace hands onto paper or cardboard.
  2. Roll out dough and use hand print cutouts to cut hands out of cookie dough.
  3. Bake according to directions on package. (I baked mine on parchment paper for easy moving around and decorating)
  4. Decorate turkeys with icing. I used Wilton gel colors to dye my icing and used the leaf tips to make my feathers. Special tips are not needed, though. Just have fun!
