I had so much fun making these adorable Turkey Cookies from Nutter Butter cookies and Golden OREOs. They are easy to make and your kids probably want to help! This is an "assembly only" recipe, so no baking is involved! Here are the instructions to make them:


Ingredients Needed:

  • Golden OREO cookies
  • Nutter Butter cookies
  • Reese's Pieces
  • Candy Eyes
  • Candy Corn
  • Orange Frosting
  • Red Frosting
  • White Frosting

Step 1 - Secure the Golden OREO cookie to the Nutter Butter cookie with a generous dab of white frosting so that the top of the Nutter Butter cookie touches the middle of the Golden OREO cookie

Step 2 - Secure both eyes to the Nutter Butter cookie using a very small dab of white frosting

Step 3 - Secure one orange Reese's Pieces with orange frosting below the eyes

Step 4 - Apply red frosting for the turkey gizzard using a Wilton 16 frosting tip (small star shaped)

Step 5 - Secure 5 candy corns to the Golden OREO for feathers by applying a dab of white frosting to the yellow tip of each candy corn

Step 6 - Let your Turkey Cookies set to dry for at least an hour to secure all the pieces to the cookies

Next I made Thanksgiving Place Cards for our table setting. I discovered these cute toothpick holders and I knew I could easily turn them into Thanksgiving Place Cards. I bought different ones for different people. Here are the instructions on how to make them:


Supplies Needed:

  • Thanksgiving Toothpick Holders
  • Plastic Pencil Grips (or small pieces of foam)
  • Black Chalkboard Stickers
  • Orange Cardstock
  • White Chalk
  • Tootsie Pops
  • Tape

Step 1 - Write names with white chalk on the black chalkboard stickers

Step 2 - Place stickers on orange cardstock and then cut around them

Step 3 - Secure names to Tootsie Pop with a long piece of tape

Step 4 - Stick a plastic pencil grip (or small piece of foam) inside an empty Thanksgiving Toothpick Holder

Step 5 - Place Tootsie Pop inside plastic pencil grip (or stick into small piece of foam) and then tape so the Tootsie Pop will not rotate

Step 6 - Set at each place setting for your Thanksgiving Table so everyone knows where they are sitting

While I was shopping at Family Dollar, I just had to have these fall leaf tealight candle holders. I made them into Thanksgiving Candy Dishes by placing lemon drops in them with one whopper in the middle. They remind me of my favorite flower, a sunflower, and it's an extra sweet treat for your Thanksgiving guests.

I fell in love with the serving dishes they sell at Family Dollar for Thanksgiving. I bought these turkey and pumpkin serving dishes for my Thanksgiving Table at really affordable prices.

Take a look at my Thanksgiving Place Setting. I decided to place the Turkey Cookie on the dinner plate, the Thanksgiving Place Card near the glass and the Thanksgiving Candy Dish near the salad plate. In the background you can see my DIY Fall Centerpiece that I made with home décor I found at Family Dollar.
