|Spotted the first leaf to turn on our maple tree.|
I was in a baking mood last week and decided to make cut-outs using my new leaf cookie cutter (10¢ garage sale find, score!) I wanted to try using several different colored doughs, roll them together to end up with a multicolored cookie. I didn't have time to make an entire batch, so I made half and chilled the rest of the dough for later. Using my aunt's "Peanuts Cookie Cut-outs" recipe, I divided the dough into 4 parts and dyed them red, orange, green and yellow. Then made smaller dough balls of all the colors and started rolling.
As I rolled out the dough, the colors started to merge. My leaf designs were changing from bright and bold, to swirly marble-like patterns. So cool. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for more leaf cookie cutters--different shapes and sizes.
|Let's make some cookies!|
|See how the colors are looking more marbly? Neato.|
|Ready for the oven.|
These should really be framed and put up to adorn my walls. They are so purdy!
|Almost too pretty to eat...almost.|
