thanksgiving traditions {turkey candy cookies}

 Every year since I can remember, my mom has been making these adorable Turkey Cookies.

She sets them at each place setting.
And often, it's the first thing I eat!

I asked permission to share them here so you can all enjoy this fun tradition, too!

Here's what you need to make one Turkey Cookie:
Fudge Stripe Cookies, Rolos, Gummy Lifesavers, Candy Corn, and chocolate frosting

Take one Fudge Stripe Cookie and lay it with it's stripes vertical.
Using some frosting, "glue" one Gummy Lifesaver at the bottom.

"Glue" your second Gummy Lifesaver on top with a little more frosting.

Unwrap your Rolo and frost the top.  "Glue" it to the bottom of the lifesavers.

Finally, "glue" a candy corn on upside down for the turkey's face/beak.

Make some more and lay them all on a cookie sheet to dry.

Once the frosting hardens a little, you can stand them up!

I just LOVE these.
Almost as much as I LOVE my mom!
Thanks for starting this Thanksgiving tradition, mom... 
I know Little Bug will have fun helping me make these some day!

I'd love to hear some of YOUR Thanksgiving traditions, too - maybe we'll adopt them as our own!
