We haven’t painted Christmas cookies in a few years because times are just too busy during December. Yesterday Tiffany decided to make some fall cookies. I have some leaf, acorn, and pumpkin cookie cutters.
She used the Trim Cookies recipe from THM. She made a double batch of cookie dough because it only makes about a dozen cookies but she made a single batch of frosting. We’ve made this before and found that the frosting makes way too much for a single batch of cookies. She separated it into four bowls and colored them red, orange, brownish green, and a reddish brown.
Brian, Lauren, and Liam were not here, so most things were just what they were; there were no zombies or decapitated anythings. Michael did try to fill the gap and made a reindeer/Rudolph out of an acorn, I think.
I iced my acorn with orange and then mixed in some of the greenish brown to make a more acorn color.
That purplish color is the reddish brown color in person. On the screen the acorn kind of looks like it is covered in peanut butter.
Unfortunately, I’m not the best photographer and I only got two pictures of Tiffany frosting cookies. She took all the other pics.
It’s funny because I came to this side of her so I could see the cookie and instead got a great shot of the glasses! Oh well, we had fun.
Sean came over soon after we’d started and asked to join us. He hadn’t eaten dinner yet. It looked like he was about to make the cookies his dinner when we informed him that it was two batches and needed to last a few days. We had a lot of laughs!
No clue what he was doing with his decorating. I think he was just plopping icing on it.
At the end, Michael was just gluing the crumbs on his last cookie with all the remaining frosting.
I said it looked like a pile of leaves.
Well, I hope you will take some time and have some family fun.
Until next time, God bless,
