Thanksgiving Oreo Turkey Cookies are a fun treat for kids and adults alike. If you are looking for a way for your child to be involved, these cookies would be an easy dessert for them to help make. They are also a great way to use up leftover candy corn from Halloween. No bake desserts are a lifesaver in the kitchen during Thanksgiving, as there is never enough room in the oven. I posted this Thanksgiving cookie recipe on my old blog in 2016 and they were a big hit, so I thought I would share these with you here.
To make Oreo Turkey Cookies, I highly recommend using Double Stuf Oreos. They are easier to get the candy corn in without separating the cookie. These turkey cookies are so easy to put together. I have to tell you I couldn’t stop laughing when I was making these because the googly eyes just cracked me up. I’m easily amused.

How to Make Thanksgiving Oreo Turkey Cookies

Apply the pumpkin spice morsel under the eyes as the beak.
