It's Turkey Time Cookies

Grab a pouch of sugar cookie mix and gobble, gobble. Making cookies has never been more fun.

Yield

9 cookies

Ingredients

1 (1 pound 1.5 ounce) pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 egg
Betty Crocker® green, red, orange and yellow sugars
3/4 cup Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white frosting (from 12 ounce container)
miniature candy-coated milk chocolate candies
Betty Crocker® red or orange decorator icing (from 4.25 ounce tube) or gel (from 0.68 ounce tube)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, butter and egg until soft dough forms.

On lightly floured surface, roll dough about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with 3 to 3 1/2 inch round cookie cutter to make 18 rounds. Place 9 rounds 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Cool 2 minutes before removing from baking sheet to wire cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make "turkey feathers," cut each of remaining rounds into 6 equal wedges. Place 9 wedges 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle remaining 45 wedges with colored sugars as desired. Place 1 inch apart on baking sheet.

Bake wedges 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Cool 2 minutes before removing from baking sheet to wire cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Spread frosting on round cookies. Place undecorated and decorated wedges on cookies as shown in photo. Add candy-coated candies for eyes; draw feet with icing as shown in photo.
