Autumn Inspiration

After my spiderweb extravaganza, I again found inspiration from some of my new blog friends and decided it was time for round two.

 I have to say I was the most excited about the pumpkins but never made it that far, as I seem to have run into a shelf-life issue.  Being a newbie at this cookie thing, I didn't pay attention to how long they were out to cool, or out again later to dry and I think the butter became rancid in some of the leaves and acorns.  So once it was pumpkin-icing time, the cookies had to be disposed of.  Anywho...I got through the leaves and acorns okay, and even tried making some chocolate cookies this time.  I also tried the Wilton Color Mist spray to make the leaves look a little more realistic.  Warning: allow the cookies to dry fully before applying a new color...you might also use the green sparingly or your leaves will look moldy - yuck.

Confession...these were a little simpler than the spider web cookies, but I am in LOVE with the acorns.  I am putting these in the win column.

 Happy Fall!
