Sugar Cookies for Fall
This past week I made sugar cookies for a friend’s daughter to take to school for her birthday. The theme was “Fall”, and I had a blast trying out some new cookie decorations. The cookies turned out pretty well so I thought I’d share them here if anyone needs a little decorating inspiration! I used this cookie cutter set from Wilton for the acorns and leaves, plus a random pumpkin cookie cutter that I’ve had for ages.
Sorry about the not so great pictures. It was late, the icing was still wet, and I just set the cookie sheet on the kitchen floor and snapped away. On a positive note, I did figure out how to change my auto white balance setting on my camera. 🙂
The decorating was pretty straight forward and simple. I’ve learned that my cookies turn out better when I stick to straight lines and don’t try anything incredibly artistic. I thought these turned out pretty cute, and they were very fun to make. If you’re just getting into cookie decorating, I recommend starting with simple, one color designs like these. I used a glaze icing (link to the recipe below) to outline around the cookies and flood the inside. Then I just piped a few decorations onto the cookies once the flood icing had dried. It turns out that for me, simple is the way to go. 🙂
