Turkey Sugar Cookies

These were really easy and fun to make with the family!

I bought Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough from the store and prepared it per the instructions.  I also cheated and used store bought frosting.  I Kept a bit of the white frosting, just enough to do little dots for the eyes on the cookies.  The rest I added orange food coloring to it.

I used the orange frosting to make the beaks and feet.  Then I put a line of orange frosting across the top where the “feathers” go – candy corn.

My kids thought it was fun to create their own “Turkeys”…

And Hubby had to make one of his own…

Rice Krispie "Pumpkins"

These are perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving time!  My friend, Amanda, made these…

Make the Original Rice Krispie Treats. I would add orange food coloring to the mix before you add the Rice Krispies until it’s a shade of orange you like.

Instead of pressing the mixture into a pan, roll a portion of the mix into the size “pumpkin” you desire.

Use a mini Tootsie Roll as a stem.

Thanksgiving Veggie Platter

I had fun making this!  Options are endless, just add whatever veggies your family likes in a pattern for the feathers.

For the eyes, I used the ends of string cheese with raisin in the middle.  You could use a bit of frosting or little pieces of bread cut into little circles with dark food coloring dotted in the middle.
