Easy Turkey Cookies

We love a good, easy, fun project that makes the kids say “Wow!” when they see it. And truth be told, we couldn’t keep our hands (or mouths) off these little guys either because they are not only cute, but they taste great too! We thought these would be a fun and simple idea to do with the kids or grandkids for Thanksgiving or to put on the table for the big meal. They’re just cute little turkey cookies.

Cute little guys aren’t they?

And guess what? They’re SO easy to make! You only need 3 ingredients to make the cookies, then add some frosting and eyes and feathers and you’re all set! Perfect activity to do with the kids.


Turkey Cookies Recipe:


  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick of butter, softened (that’s 1/2 C)
  • Frosting
  • Edible googly eyes
  • Candy Corn


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix your cake mix, egg and butter till combined and roll into small balls. (About 1 inch or a little less.)

Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool.

Pipe frosting into the center of a cookie. Place candy corn along one edge for the feathers.

Place another cookie on top.

Using a tiny bit of frosting, add the eyes and the tip of a candy corn (we tried to find ones that had orange tips) for the beak.

And you’re all set! Look how cute he looks hanging out on the Thanksgiving table! (We’ve got more fun Kids’ Thanksgiving Table Ideas coming later this week!
