Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Slice the pear in half lengthwise, core, remove the stem, and set each half on a plate with the cut side down. This is the body of the turkey. Cut 2 raisins in half to make 4 eyes, and set the eyes onto the narrower part of the pear. Cut a small slice from one end of the 2 remaining raisins, and stick a raisin below the eyes to make beaks. Press a broken piece of walnut, bumpy side up, into each pear below the beaks to make wattles.
  2. Trim the dried apricots into 4 feet with 3 fat toes, and place two feet at the bottom of each pear. Arrange apple wedges alternating with grapefruit sections in a fan shape around the top of the turkey, for feathers.

I noticed in the editing process that the staff listed mandarin oranges to be used for the feathers. They will work, but for a good variation of color and larger size, I used grapefruit and orange segments! And for the walnut wattle, it needs to be smooth side DOWN, bumpy side up! Enjoy

What a great dessert for my dinner party! Easy to make and delicious. When I put them out for dessert everyone raved! I made a small change by using grapefruit slices instead of manderin oranges. The size was more in keeping with the apple and apricot slices. This recipe is a KEEPER!!!

So cute! I made this for my son's Christmas party at school, and it was a hit with the kids and the teachers. Thanks for the great idea!
