Tookie Turkeys Cookies

Tookie Turkeys Cookies

These easy-to-make cookies are simple and fun to make for the busy dad and mom, and not too complicated for little hands to do with some supervision.

You'll need:
  • Oreo Double Stuff Cookies (package)
  • Bag of gourmet candy corn
  • Fondant in red, black and white (for eyes and waddle), or you can use candy eye's found at Hobby Lobby
  • Bag of Hershey's Chocolate Kisses
  • Orange chocolate melts
  • Cookie sheet lined with parchment or was paper
  • 2 small ramekin bowls
  • Round cake tip
To make your eyes roll white fondant thinly, taking your round cake tip using the large end cut out the whites of the eye's. Roll out the black fondant thinly and taking the same tip use the small end and cut out the black of the eyes. With a touch of water, glue the black to the white of the eyes and set aside to dry. (An easier way is to use the candy eyes.)

Take an Oreo and slip four candy corns upside down about 1/4 of the way into the white frosting, they are the turkey's feathers.

Do this for all of your cookies. In a small ramekin bowl melt a few kisses in the microwave (increments of 20 to 30 seconds) stir until melted. On a parchment or waxed paper lined cookie sheet lay out your turkey cookies. Now take a chocolate kiss and dip the bottom end of the kiss in the melted chocolate; just enough to cover the bottom of the kiss; this is to glue the bottom of the kiss to the center of the Oreo. Do this to all of your turkeys.
In your second ramekin bowl melt a few orange chocolate melts (increments of 20 to 30 seconds) stir until melted. Now carefully take your turkey and dip the very tip of the kiss into the orange chocolate, this will be the beak. Place back on the cookie sheet to harden/dry (about 5 to 10 minutes) do this to all of them. While waiting, take the red fondant and knead working until soft. Take a pea size ball and work out a waddle. Then take a touch of melted chocolate and attach waddle to the beak. Do this to all you turkeys.
Now to finish off your turkeys, take the eyes, and a food safe brush, and brush the back of the eye with melted chocolate and attach them to the sides of the kiss. You can place them goofy if you so want to give them some personality.
Voila you've now got your very own flock of turkeys!

The candy eyes I found were in a package of four Halloween sprinkles around October. If they are not on sale check out their facebook page for a coupon. Wilton fondant you can find in packages of four primary colors and are also available at Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Look for coupons for Michael's in your Sunday paper or sign up for email coupons.

Mother's day Brunch

For the beginning of May I kept busy with a simple buttercream retirement cake.  I used a butter cream transfer method to create this sweet red motor cycle, camper and camp fire.  Then I  constructed a retirement plaque out of rolled fondant.    Best wishes to the United States Postal Service Person, enjoy your retirement.

On  Mother's Day I did a spring brunch for my mother on Sunday afternoon.  I made this Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, a recipe I found fromMartha Stewart. I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it. It was a very easy and quick recipe to whip up and you can even do it ahead of time for convenience.

As a side for the Quiche,  I made a Non-GMO micro-green salad with julienne cucumbers and strawberries,  drizzled with a pomegranate salad dressing.  These delicate micro-greens needed delicate garnishes and doing a julienne cut to the…

Spring Bazaar Arts and Craft

St. John's held their annual Spring Bazaar on April 8th. 

Bake sale items were to help raise money for a new roof.  I made these cupcakes and a few mini cake's with my new Russian cake tips for the bake sale.

I packaged up, the single cupcakes in ice cream cups and taped a clear cup upside down as a cover.  This made for a great to go cup.  

I made up multi packs of three and four cupcakes in spring colored and bunny boxes.

For the mini cakes I removed the cup cake holder insert and placed the 5" cakes inside.  They fit perfectly. 

After checking in, I found the single-serve cups sold faster than the multi-packs.  A good thought for next bake sale. Be sure to stop by next year to check out the wonderful artists and vendors. 

Summer Harvest Party

It’s been a busy summer so far, but I was able to put in a kitchen garden this year.  

It was just in time to win a Ball Made To Share canning House Party which was sponsored by Newell Brands.
