Oreo Turkey Cookies with Pretzels

Let’s cover all of the bases of how to make turkey cookies.

What type of cookies can I use?

You do not have to use Oreo sandwich cookies in this recipe. You can use homemade cookies or other creme-filled sandwich cookies. Use whatever you like best.

How do I make the cookies and candy stick together?

In this recipe, I used store-bought icing in a tube. You can also use melted chocolate or chocolate chips to adhere the candy to the cookie but you may need to refrigerate the cookies so the chocolate can set.

You can also use your own icing. It’s just easier with no fuss to buy the premade icing.

What if can’t find all of the items you used?

What other candies can I use for the eyes? If you can not find candy eyes, you can use white M&M’s, or white chocolate chips, or a dot of icing. Use black gel icing to make the pupil.

Alternate nose ideas are white or peanut butter chips.

You can also use a dab of red gel icing to make the turkeys snood! The “snood” is that fleshy red skin around the beak.

How do I store them and how long do they last?

These cute easy turkey cookies can easily be made a couple of days ahead and last up to two weeks in a sealed tight storage container.

Let’s make the cookies!
