Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies


Halloween is over and Christmas is quickly approaching, but while everyone is putting up their trees, I’m getting ready to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving because you get the quality family time without the pressure of gift-giving. (Ha!) And then there is the excuse to eat all that food and then take a nap. I am that person that sheepishly says “I don’t like pumpkin pie.” WHAT?! It’s true. But dessert is always the best part, so I’ve made these awesome turkey cookies! They are a great way to use up leftover candy corn from Halloween.


All you need is OREO cookies, candy corn, googly eyes, pumpkin spice morsels, and black cake/cookie icing (to use as glue). I highly recommend using DOUBLE STUF OREOS. They are easier to get the candy corn in. These are fun to assemble and even the kids can get involved. I have to tell you I couldn’t stop laughing when I was making these because the googly eyes just cracked me up. I’m easily amused.

Thanksgiving Turkey Cookie Recipe

Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies


  • Double Stuf OREO cookies
  • candy corn
  • googly eyes
  • pumpkin spice morsels
  • black cake/cookie icing


  1. Take 4-5 pieces of candy corn and carefully push into the icing in between the cookie parts. Don't push too far!
  2. Using the black cake or cookie icing as "glue," squeeze a tiny amount where you want to place the eyes and beak.
  3. Apply the googly eyes to the icing.
  4. Apply the pumpkin spice morsel under the eyes as the beak.

These will be a hit at any family function, especially Thanksgiving dinner. Adults and kids alike will enjoy taking apart and eating this simple dessert.
