Do a turkey dance...

Happy Thanksgiving!!!  I had to share these darling cookies with everyone.  My kids saw something similar to these, and I was forced to make them.  Actually, I couldn't wait to make them, they are so cute and make Thanksgiving a little extra special for my farmhands.  What is better than eating your very own sugar cookie turkey???

These are super simple, and really fun.  I love their legs!  And piping the frosting on instead of spreading it made life really stress free!!!  Simply use a good sugar cookie recipe and cut out rounds with a large biscuit cutter.  They can be whatever diameter you choose really.  Whip up a little cream cheese icing (recipe follows) and you are almost done.  I used candy corns for the feathers.  The white icing is piped on with a #11 round piping tip.  In two small bowls, tint a small amount (1/4 cup) of icing black and another orange.  Pipe the legs and beaks orange with a #3 round tip and pipe black eyes with the same tip.  You can gobble, gobble these up at the end of your Thanksgiving feast.

1 package cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup), room temperature
1 pound powdered sugar
2 tbsp cream 
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter together on high speed, until light and fluffy, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl once or twice.  Add the powdered sugar and beat until combined. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again.  Add cream and vanilla and mix to incorporate.  Icing should be fairly stiff.
