I have been looking for a turkey cookie cutter.
I have seen some people use it for cookies on CC.
The turkey is facing you and his tail feathers fan out in the background.
Can anyone lead me in the right direction.
I have checked lots of sites with no luck so far.

Thanks!

If it is what I am thinking of then there is not a special cookie cutter for it.

You just use the round cutters.
Make 1 round cookie for the base and then 3-4 more rounds in different sizes from small to large.

Take your base cookie and sit it on the counter. Then take your smallest cookie and cut off a small piece of the bottom so that you create a flat edge. You will then stand this up on your round base cookie. This becomes the head/body of the turkey.

Then you cut your next largest cookie the same way but so that when you set it behind the body you can still see the edge of the cookie.

You can do this as many times as you want as long as you have room.

Then you decorate the body/head and then add the feathers to each of the remaining cookies. There are directions on here somewhere.

I hope this helps and I have not confused you. If so please pm me and I can show you. I know I have made them before but I dont think they are in my gallery.

I double checked my pictures and I do have one out there. However, I used the heart shaped cutters for the tail feathers.

Have your tired PM the people with cookies they posted. I have not seen what you are talking about but sound cute.

If you contact GeminiRJ

She made cookie cutters and sells them. Take a look at her cookies.

Here is her Turkey cookie.

The cutter I use to make the tail on this turkey is a 3" sunflower cutter. Simply trim off a small portion of the cookie before baking, so that it sits nice on the 3" round base.

I did a tutorial last year on how to make these cookies...if anyone is interested I could bump it back up to the front page.

Thanks everyone for your help, I went back to the picture gallery to try to find a picture to post in the forum. I found the cookie shape I wanted and it was done by TracyLH.
After reading her comments, I found that she made her own cutter.
I was more interested in a flat cookie and not 3D since I have quite a few to do. I may improvise and see if I can come up with a cutter that will work.

There are some scallop shell cutters that are similar. Or use a daisy cutter (Wilton calls it a blossom cutter) and just use icing to add turkey feet to the bottom two scallops if you don't want to cut them.
By the way, all of those above mentioned turkey cookies are super cute.

I think the cutter you describe is available at www.coppergifts.com -- it is a scallop shape that can be decorated as a shell or turkey!

GeminiRJ, please do bump it.
I always try to bump holiday posts that were successful in previous years. They usually are happily posted on the next year, too.

Any chance that a link to that thread could also be posted here.....I wasn't here last year so I don't even know where to begin to look for it, lol. Thanks. Jan
