The Meet Market brought in some cookies from another establishment. they were swirly fall leaves with the veins drawn in. (they looked all right, but i take issue with the recipe.) i felt i had to participate in the making of fall cookies, so i brought these in to share. just simple leaves, but with a blast of burgundy or red with the airbrush, then a quick sketch of veins. i like how the watered-down food coloring sometimes makes a splotchy effect--leaves are never evenly dappled, and it looks so water-colorish. (while they were drying i went to the craft store, and a leaf just like the larger green/burgundy one was lying next to my car. nice.)
the cookie dough for something decorated is currently in the cooler and i welcome your suggestions for my inaugural, in-house, professional batch of decorated cookies to sell to the public. more leaves? pumpkins? oh the Halloween ideas... and when i get them made, i'll be sure to tell you all about the place. for now i'm a mom on the go, and i have to post this quick, and meanwhile you can head over there and sample my banana bread (no nuts) and oatmeal/raisin/date cookies (with and without nuts). yum. go, eat, be merry! and coming soon, ferrets!
