Amy~ those turkeys are my nemesis!  I tried making them last year and they just kept falling apart!  I got frustrated and gave up!  What the heck? 8 year old boys can make these turkey treats...but not me! :) I might try them again this year...maybe.


 Oh man!  Sorry to hear that.  I had to prop mine up to get them to stay that way till they dried.  Maybe a nice thick frosting...like frosting used for gingerbread houses might help.  I feel that same way about my SIL homemade rolls.  They never turn out like hers...grr!

Maria--Those cookies would be fun for the kids to make while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner.  Thanks for sharing!

Amy~ yeah I was thinking that Royal Icing would work much better than regular frosting.  I used a canned frosting~ and I think a buttercream would probably work better than that too.

But...I think next time I am going to try dipping chocolate for the "glue".  It sets up pretty quickly, and I have a bunch of it left over from my son's wedding.  I don't know if I'll be making them this year (Thanksgiving at my in-laws is typically pretty casual) but next year for sure!
