During our snow day, my oldest daughter and I attempt Autumn Cookies. She loves botany, so after she instructed me on proper leaf venation patterns, we set out on our artistic endeavor.
We baked the cookies using leaf cookie cutters we found at Wegmans. I used a basic sugar cookie recipe. Then we spread white icing (powdered sugar, almond milk, corn syrup, almond extract) on each cookie.
While the frosting was still wet, we dropped icing colored in autumn shades onto each iced cookie, and then we used paintbrushes to achieve fun effects.
What a fun afternoon! I’m learning that the crafts don’t end when your girls grow up; they just become more beautiful and complex.
