WELCOME FALL cookies…..

I can’t seem to remember the link to where I saw how to make these, so know that this isn’t my idea.  I’m just sharing the process with you.  I LOVE Fall and remembered these cookies and how EASY they were to make.

INGREDIENTS:

1 log Sugar cookies, thawed
Food coloring (I used “food grade” gel type in red, orange, and yellow)fall
Flour

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the sugar cookie dough has thawed,  roll it into about 1/4 cup all-purpose flour.  Knead the flour into the dough, this is just to help eliminate how sticky it could be.

Divide the dough into 3 equal parts.  Taking each of the food coloring, add about 1/2 teaspoon to each divided dough.

Knead the food coloring into each of the sections, using more flour, if needed to help with the stickiness.  Continue kneading until the dough is the coloring you like, adding more coloring if needed.  Do this for all 3 colors.

Add more flour on the counter, pinch off sections of each colored dough and lay them out side by side, as pictured, pushing them down with your fingers.  Now using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out into a sheet, about 1/4 inch thick, as pictured.

If you’re wanting to use some colored sugars, go ahead and sprinkle that on.  Using a floured cookie cutter, OR you can free hand your leaves too.  Cut the leaves and place them onto a cookie sheet.  Using a butter knife, cut veins into each of the leaves, for added effect.  Bake them in a preheated 350 degree oven for 9-10 minutes.

Roll the leftover dough up and then cut out more cookies.  Repeating the process until all dough is used up.  ENJOY!
