Turkey Cookies will tickle your funny bone and make you say, “Gobble, Gobble!”
A couple of years ago my cousin Suzanne Moore took this adorable picture of their 7-year-old grandson, Ian, with this cute turkey cookie. Suzanne and her husband Dwight made the cookies to bring to Ian when they visited he and his parents, Mark and Sarah Moore, in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Ian is very bright and loves karate, soccer and Star Wars. He even takes drum lessons!
The cookies were a big hit with everyone! They are so cute you can’t help but smile when you see them.
