Gingerbread Feather Cookies November 16 2011, 0 Comments





Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I've got a few feather themed projects lined up for you this week that will add something extra special to your Thanksgiving table. First up are these festive gingerbread feather cookies.

I hand cut these cookies using a feather cut from card stock as my template. Hand cutting did take a little extra time so I recommend cutting and baking your feather cookies ahead of time if you are making a lot of them.

After rolling and cutting press a lollipop stick into the back of the cookie and press on a little extra dough to secure the stick.  Turn back over and bake cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Once cooled you are ready to decorate!  I used orange and blue candy melts, and orange and teal jimmies.  Melt your candy melts in the microwave 20 seconds at a time and once melted pour into a disposable decorating bag.  Pipe stripes of candy melt onto your cookies and coat with jimmies.  Let one color set before you move onto the next.

I've created a printable PDF for you that includes templates for all 4 feather themed projects created to help you celebrate this Thanksgiving. Download here: FeatherTemplate
