Fall Sugar Cookies | Acorn and Leaf Sugar Cookies
What season would be complete without sugar cookies... okay, several versions of sugar cookies. You might remember my Heirloom Pumpkin cookies I made a couple of weeks ago to match the fun colors of the heirloom pumpkins I'd found.
These Fall Sugar Cookies are a mixture of different colors and sizes of leaves and acorns. To make the different shades of warm reds, golds and browns, I started with a light brown icing, then added red (for example) to achieve a muted "Fall" red color. I used the same technique for the gold and darker brown icings. For more details on how I mix icing colors, visit this post!

I featured these Fall Sugar Cookies at my Front Porch Pumpkin Carving Party.
These cookies would be great for the rest of October and November - You could even have them out for Thanksgiving!
