Turkey Rolls with the Kids

Turkeys Made From Your Favorite Dough Recipe

Everyone at the kids' table will gobble these up.
A couple of years ago we tried an idea I had seen briefly on cable TV (before I had ever heard of Pinterest!).  I'm glad I took photos, although I can't be 100% sure which dough recipe I used.  I'm fairly certain you can use your favorite dinner roll recipe (I like Betty Crocker's Dinner Rolls).

Before baking, roll out your dough in a large circle.  Take a pizza cutter to divide the circle into equal "pizza shaped" pieces.  Next, position each dough wedge in a muffin pan hole, with the "head" of the turkey (the small, pointy end) lifted up to the edge of the muffin hole and the "tail" (the wide end) also lifted up.  Use a toothpick to poke two holes for the turkey's eyes and use kitchen shears to snip the tail, so that it will look feathery.  The best photo I have this step is this one I found on Pinterest.

Bake according to directions, but watch carefully that the poor turkey's head and tail don't burn.

If you try this, please let me know which recipe you used, or if you used store-bought dough.  I would definitely try a "test run" before your holidays (you know everyone will help you eat them!).  Happy baking, and happy Thanksgiving!
