Thanksgiving Pie Slice Cookies (Tutorial)






These pie slices are fairly simple.....but so fun and seasonal. :)


Cut out pie wedges and add some random "crust ribbons" on the edge to bake on top.
(see photo below)


I love a lattice crust on a pie......so I decided to make a sugar cookie lattice crust.
Just like pie crust, cut stripes of dough and weave them together.
Cut the lattice to fit the top of the pie slice cookie.


Depending on what kind of pie you are making will determine glaze color.
I chose a cherry lattice pie slice and a pumpkin pie slice.

Outline and flood the entire pie slice cookie excluding the ribbon crust.


After the "cherry pie" glaze dries for about 5 minutes,
place the lattice crust on top.
(If it's done too soon, it may cause the glaze to fall over the sides.)


Add a "whipped cream" dollop on top of the pumpkin pie, if desired.
(see photo below)

Using chocolate brown, warm brown, and bright white color gels,
brush some "golden brown character" onto the pie crusts.

Wedding Groom Heart Cookies (Tutorial)






I know there is nothing new about groom and bride heart cookies.
They've been around for many years.

But as I made them for my daughter's wedding last month......
I thought I might her wedding's version on the blog.

The cool thing about these wedding cookies is that they can be completely personalized.
Both the groom and bride's wedding attire can be emulated via a heart cookie!

My new son-in-law wore a grey suit with a plaid bow tie.


He's a quite a spiffy guy.
I love him tons!
So it was an honor to make him and my daughter some special cookies for their wedding.





Start off by making the white shirt on the heart cookie.
Outline and flood a triangle (of sorts) as seen below.


Allow the glaze to dry for about 1 hour and then add the gray suit.


Once the white glaze has dried for approximately 1 1/2- 2 hours,
use a cake tester to make some shirt lines and add some buttons.


Since the bow tie's base was white, I just added a white bow tie to the cookie
and will add the pink stripes later.


Outline and flood the gray lapels.


And finally......add the pink stripes on the bowtie. :)

Personal Side

Well....Christmas baking has certainly arrived at our home.
I did several different sets of Christmas cookies this week.
 
Believe it or not, I think I'm done baking the season's cookies for the blog.
That's good.....because there's lots happening in the next two months to keep me away from my oven.
Now if I can just get lots of photos edited and blog work done.....I'm set. 
Haha!

If that was all it took......it would be a breeze.
No, there's so much beyond that, but it will give me peace of mind to have blog stuff completed.

October is almost over. 
That's truly amazing.
Time waits for no one......for sure!

When I get back from Italy......it will be Thanksgiving and then.....Christmas.
I'm trying to anticipate things ahead of time, but it is very, very challenging.
I don't know that I will have time to get all my Christmas decorations up.
That makes me a bit sad.....but I'll do my best to make something work......
without going CRAZIE. :)

I hope you are enjoying the fall.
It is so beautiful outside.
And the weather is perfect here in Missouri.

Thanks for sticking with me. :)

Working on Christmas cookies has a way of brightening the mood in an extraordinary way. ��
(And yes, I know it's too early to be thinking Christmas,
but events in the next two months necessitated prep work in October.)


Birthday Cookies from last year.....
I hope you have a sweet day.
