Thanksgiving Turkey Lemon Cookies | Craft Dictator
 
One of my families favorite cookies is lemon cookies made with a lemon cake mix.  I like to make cut out cookies out of it mainly because I love cut out cookies.  It is not the best cut out cookie recipe because the cookies spread a little when baking and don’t have nice precise edges when done.
All that said they are my second most requested iced cookie. Because the spread I usually only cut out simple shapes with not small parts when making them. The cut out turkeys did not turn out well, but the circles, leaves and pumpkins did great with this recipe. I first found this recipe on YouTube while watching cat videos (REALLY!). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEj3YJAXS6E is the video that gives very concise and accurate instructions.
 
Ingredients
1  cake mix
2 eggs

The Decorating
I am not a master decorator and I just like to play around with it.  There are so many great tutorials on the web that teach you how to ice cookies.  I was going to outline how to ice cookies but if you have never iced cookies before you should watch some of these videos.

After I iced the cookies I used the Wilton candy accents to add some pizzazz to the turkeys.

The wooden basket the cute cookies are in came from Goodwill.  It was very inexpensive but needed painting.  I think this will make a great hostess gift during the Thanksgiving holiday.

    the skin’s connective layers so that they can be seen beneath

  6. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
