Yesterday I made these sugar cookies to give away today. I bought a bunch of fall cookie cutters was dying to try them out. I ended up only using leaf cookie cutters, I'll save the acorns, squirrel and turkey for another day. I used a new decorating technique to make the leaves look like they are changing colors. The bright, colorful leaves are my favorite thing about fall. To make the leaves, use royal icing, pipe the outside and flood the inside. While the inside is still wet dot or swirl another color on top. Take a tooth pick and swirl the two colors together. You can use this technique to create all kinds of beautiful designs on cookies. I thought these fall cookies turned out great! Check back later in the week to see my turkey sugar cookies.
