Beyond Pie: The Thanksgiving Turkey Cookie Platter

Thanksgiving Turkey Platter CookiesI’ve been wanting to try a turkey platter for awhile now, after seeing these created by a few cookie idols of mine. But I wanted this one to be a little different. We had created some leaves last year that had just the same look I was going for, so the only thing left to decide was whether the feathers should be color-separated, or just placed randomly. I went for random and quite like the effect!

The beauty of this is that as everyone eats the feather cookies, you can just re-arrange them to keep the display perfect throughout your Thanksgiving celebration. That is, if they don’t get all eaten at once!

Baking Through The Holidays

The holidays may be long gone, but through the chaos of shopping, wrapping and tradition, we found time to squeeze in a little baking.  Because you can’t show up at a holiday party empty-handed!  For Thanksgiving, we created pumpkin and fall leaf cookies, perfecting simplicity and exploring new techniques. For Christmas, we found that the perfect ice blue makes a huge difference in our detailed snowflake cookies and that a basic tree design can still impress.
