Fall Cookies and Fantastic Giveaway by The Cookie Cutter Company

Welcome to my first post for The Cookie Cutter Company!
When I was contacted to make some tutorials for their site I was absolutely thrilled !

Just in case you haven't heard, they have over 500 designs of cookie cutters, great prices ( $1 per cookie cutter), fast and low shipping and a great customer service.
The Cookie Cutter Company  is in the process of launching a page on their site where their customers can maximize their cookie making enjoyment, see different ways the cutters could be used, and more importantly, not feel overwhelmed baking and decorating cookies.
They want to show you cookie crafting ideas that will allow you to create treats that are as delightful to the eye as they are to your taste buds.

Make sure you check the end of this post for a FANTASTIC GIVEAWAY AND A PROMO CODE JUST FOR MY READERS!


For those of you who have never decorated cookies before I have broken down the various steps as thoroughly as possible, I am sure you will have fun decorating your cookies!


FALL COOKIES



I like to plan the design of my cookies before I start decorating them ,specially now,with a 2 week old new born and a 4 week old puppy,my head is pretty much spinning around!


To make these FALL Cookies you will need:

  • Red, orange and brown royal icing ( thick for pipping and thin to flood the cookies)
  • Pastry bags, couplers and tips #1 and #2
  • Red and gold sanding sugar
  • White Nonpareils
  • Gold luster dust ( optional)
  • Paintbrush
  • Thin paste of meringue powder and water
  • Toothpicks

 Making the Maple Leaf Cookies

 While the cookie is still wet, pipe brown veins and let the cookie dry for a few hours. When the cookie is completely dry,use a paintbrush dipped in the mix of meringue powder and water and outline the cookie, then dust with the red sanding sugar. Let it dry for a couple of minutes and brush off excess sugar.

 After you blend the icing let the cookie dry for a few hours. Then get some inspiration from some of the leaves of your backyard :),outline the cookie with brown icing and pipe veins on the cookie using tip #1.
 Making the Oak Leaf cookies

 This is a pretty simple desing. After you flood the cookie let the icing dry and then pipe the leaf veins ( I used tip #2)

 For this other leaf, after I flooded the cookie I piped orange veins on the wet icing and draw a toothpick throughout the cookie, then I piped  red veins on the still wet icing.
When the cookie is completely dry,use a paintbrush dipped in the mix of meringue powder and water and outline the cookie's veins, then dust with the red sanding sugar. Let it dry for a couple of minutes and brush off excess sugar.

 Making the Acorn cookies

Outline and flood acorns and let them dry for a few hours.

 For the gold acorn: Use a paintbrush dipped in the mix of meringue powder and water and brush the acorn's cupule, then dust with the gold sanding sugar. Let it dry for a couple of minutes and brush off excess sugar.
Mix some gold luster dust with a few drops of vodka and paint the acorn.

 For the white acorns:  After the cookies are dry use a paintbrush dipped in meringue powder mixture and brush the acorns, then dust one with the white nonpareils and the other one with the sanding sugar. Let it dry for a couple of minutes and brush off excess sugar


 

Well I hope you can have as much fun as I did decorating your own cookies.
