Look at these cute lil’ cookies! I have been sick for almost the entire month of November. Currently dealing with tonsillitis. Glamorous, huh? Needless to say, I’m over it. Over. It. But I had to bake something for Thanksgiving. I saw these little cookies on Pinterest and decided to give them a try. They were so, so easy. Especially because I, uh, totally took a shortcut and used pre-made cookie dough. And pre-made frosting. Shhh. Don’t tell.
You will need:
Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds
1 tub of chocolate frosting
Candy eyes (Target sells them!)
Small, round sugar cookies (I used pre-made Pillsbury dough)
1. Bake your cookies! Allow the cookies to cool completely.
2. Frost each cookie with chocolate icing.
3. Place two eyes on each cookie. Then place yellow & red sunflower seeds on each cookie for the beak and gizzard (is the red thing the gizzard? Maybe?).
4. Make the feathers using any combination of colored sunflower seeds.
