fall colors leaf cookies

The fall colors are starting to die down here, but these festive cookies 
are a great way to keep the season going just a little bit longer. 
[I'm so not ready for winter!]

I started off drawing designs with cookie icing.
You can always make your own, but the bottled stuff is easy:
just microwave and start decorating.


But my icing was too hot and a few cookies got a little bit messy...


so I started swirling the icing with toothpicks.


After some trial and error, I created some really neat designs.





Enjoy the rest of your autumn [while it lasts!]

  1. These cookies look whole grain, are they? P.S. You could move down South... Fall is still just getting started here in Arkansas!

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Carissa: they are gluten-free not whole grain... I tried to add chocolate and the texture got all funky on me [so that's why no recipe- They needed to be more chocolatey!]
