I cheated a little bit with these cookies. I started with a sugar cookie mix so I didn't have to wait for the dough to chill. Anyway, after the cookies were cooled, I added a Reese's peanut butter cup for the head. I secured it with a little bit of frosting on the bottom of the peanut butter cup. Then I added the yellow, orange, and red frosting with a star tip. I added legs with a line tip.
These could be done at this stage if you want it to look like the back of the turkey :)
I added eyes, a beak, and a gobbler with the line tip.
I made the ones below with chocolate discs insted of peanut butter cups incase anyone couldn't have peanut butter. I secured two discs together with frosting.
