How cute are these Turkey Cookies?! And so darn easy to make. You don’t have to turn on the oven, get out a mixer, or even anything to measure with. They are so fast and fun your kids and guests are going to love them!

Now, you could use Homemade Vanilla Frosting for this if you wanted. If you are making Frosted Sugar Cookies and have extra, it works perfectly. But if you want to pick up the store bought stuff in a tube, you need so little of it, I take the shortcut for this recipe.

How To Make Oreo Turkey Cookies

  • The first step is to twist off the top of the Oreo cookie so you have one side with just chocolate cookie and another side with the filling. Arrange them on a tray in front of you.
  • Pipe a little bit of frosting across the top of the filling. Arrange 4 candy corn, with the white part place in the line of frosting. Pipe another line of frosting over the top of the white part of the candy corn. Place the top of the cookie back in place, pressing down just slightly so the frosting touches and it can harden in place.
  • Unwrap your peanut butter cups, place a little bit of frosting onto the base of the peanut butter cup and place into the bottom center of the Oreo cookie.
  • Pipe the tiniest dot of frosting onto the peanut butter cups where the eyes should go, and gently press them into place.
  • You can use frosting or melted chocolate for the “beak” Dip the red M&M into the frosting or melted chocolate and place on the peanut butter cup. Press gently and hold for a minute for it to start to harden.
  • Place in the fridge for the cookies to set up for 15-20 minutes.

Recipe Tips & Suggestions

  • Frosting vs Melted Chocolate. You can really use either for almost all of the steps. I think the frosting works best for the “feathers” as well as blends in because it is the same color as the filling. But for the beak I like chocolate sets up faster and blends in better. So you can mix and match or use whatever works for you.
  • Storage. These will last for 5-6 days in an airtight container. So they are great to make ahead for your Thanksgiving get together.
  • Switch the candy. You can use different candies to get the same affect. Rolo candy works great in place of the peanut butter cups. Reese’s Pieces or even colored frosting works great for the “beak” as well. You could also use butterscotch or peanut butter chips for the beak.
  • Different Cookies. You really could use any cookie you wanted for these. Even a homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie would work great, just place the candy corn directly on tops using the frosting and they will be adorable.
