Tom the Fruit and Cheese Turkey Recipe

You will be "Thankful" you decide to Gobble this up!
Complexity Level:  Easy
Tom the Fruit and Cheese Turkey
What You Need:
1 Red Grapefruit
1 Gala Apple
1 Navel Orange
2 oz. Cheddar Cheese
1 Red Barlette Pear
2 Peanuts (Beak)
2 Dried Cranberries or 1 Chocolate Candy (leftover from Halloween in this house!) -- the wattle
4 mini Chocolate Chips or 4 Black flat Sprinkles (eyes)

Slice the pear in half.  This will be the turkey's body.  Peel and pull apart your orange and grapefruit.  If you want, you can cut off the white part.  Finally, slice your Apple and cheddar into thin slices.

To build, layer the orange, grapefruit, apple, and cheddar.  Cut 2 feet out of the cheddar and place near the bottom of your "feathers".  Place the pear atop the fruit and build the face.  I used a tiny bit of peanut butter to stick the beak, wattle, and eyes.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I!!
