I love Fall!! I think it might be my favorite season. Maybe it is because it sneaks up and then in a blink of an eye it is over. I absolutely love the colors of the leaves changing. We have a gorgeous decorative vine growing next to our house. For about one week the leaves are the most stunning red and orange colors. Then suddenly all the leaves are gone and we are left with bare branches. I really wish the magical colors of the season would last a bit longer. But at least I can capture the colors with icing.
The leaf cookies were quite easy to make. I outlined them, then flooded the cookies. Once the icing was dry, I piped the leaf veins. I really need to do a basic sugar cookie tutorial one of these days. In the meantime you can check out this tutorial from Bake at 350 for some awesome tips and step-by-step photos. I am loving Sugarbelle’s leaf cookies that have been sprayed with color mist…adorable!
I couldn’t resist making some apple cookies for the platter. This Fall I have been trying to squeeze in a little baking between freezing, canning, and dehydrating apples. This has been my first time canning on my own. I think I’ve found a new hobby. I’ll have to share more of it with you in another post. These apple cookies would also be perfect for a teacher gift or school themed party.
More pumpkins?! I know I’ve probably overdone the pumpkin sugar cookies this season. But I had to try them again using royal icing this time. They are so fun and I love the texture. For more details on how I made them see my previous pumpkin post.
What are your favorite things about this season?
