Fall Cookies.....Round Three :-)

I love fall......so I can't help but continue to make fall cookies. Besides, last week was my first batch I've offered at church and my husband's work for Cookie With A Mission in three months, and they were very popular. I made $99 last week. Hurray! All of this money is going to help some of the Ukrainian pastors and wives attend the retreat that I'm teaching at come mid-November. It is so wonderful to work so hard for such a great cause. :-)

You'll see lots of repeats this go around, but I think I'm perfecting some of them and making them the best that I am able. I had such fun doing plaids a little cleaner, picking up some great inspiration from others, and even creating my very own new design.

Here's plaid leaves again......plus a sparkly leaf inspired by Maryann and a sunflower inspired by Callye.


Here's my latest version of patched pumpkins and quilted pumpkins. I love these very much. :-)


More mini-s......I got some new mini cutters this week and had such fun doing them as well. I designed the Indian corn on my own. (There's a larger version below.)


Here's a new version of the cut-out cookie. These particular ones were originally inspired by Rosey Sugar.....but mine don't even compare to hers.


New Indian corn......fun, fun. I'm still debating whether or not I like these better than my other design.


More quilts.....are you sick of them yet? ;-)


One of each to see all at one time....... :-)


OK......I'll be doing fall cookies one more time next week for a craft show/apple festival, so bear with me one more time.

Everything is B E A U T I F U L !!!

Did you handcut the corn?

I really enjoy seeing your new cookies as you post them--you are very talented! Just curious--what kind of price do you set for these cookies that you sell? I am going to be selling decorated cookies at our Artisan's market in December and wonder what people are happy paying you for your gorgeous cookies.

Every one of those are so stinkin' cute!!! Great job!!

Lauren said...

I love your fall cookies! The quilted pumpkins just might be my favorite. :)

Absolutely adorable!!!

Bea said...

ALL of your COOKIES are great, Pam! You are so talented!! I'm sure God inspires you, as all your work is for His cause... I can't wait for your next Fall batch :)

CookieCrazieLady said...

Thank you, thank you everyone. You're comments are so sweet. I'm humbled that anyone would think my work that terrific.

But as Bea said, I do this to honor God and carry out His plan. I am certain He has put His blessing on it, because there is no other explanation for why I can do this. Two years ago, I was decorating cookies for Easter, Valentines Day, and Christmas.....just for the fun of it. And if you look at the pics at the beginning of this blog, you will see that my girls and I were totally amateurs at it. Since then, I've been reading forums, trying new things, and being totally inspired by some really great cookie decorators. I'm thankful that God lets me do something I love so much.....and in the process, others are shown God's love. :-)

Grandma Tillie's Bakery.....I charge by the size of the cookies. Large (greater than 4") are $3. Medium (3-4") are $2. Small (less than 3") are $1.50. I put two to three mini-s together and charge $1. I hope you have great success at your market. :-)

Bea said...

Hi, Pam! I forgot to ask if you could share this info... those white x's you put on your quilts... are they made with the icing or do you use some kind of paint, pen or marker? Thanks!!

CookieCrazieLady said...

Bea....I use icing for the "x"s. :-)

Tasha said...

Awesome......just totally awesome!!! Your decorating technique is brilliant

claudia said...

great work as usual: I was waiting for Halloween to improve myself once again with cookie decorating but pregnancy makes me fell sick of every kind of food so my cutters lay unused:(
anyway I always took great ispiration from your work, keep on decorating! ;)

CookieCrazieLady said...

Thanks Tasha. :-)

Claudia....I'm so sorry that you don't feel like decorating, but your baby is so worth it! :-) In the years to come, you'll have even more reason to decorate cookies with a little one around.

Thanks for your encouragement.

Jennifer said...

CookieCrazieLady said...

Thanks Jennifer. Practice, practice, practice......that's what works. :-)

When doing your quilted cookies, do you ice with black first then fill in with color, or add the black at the end? I am not artistically talented, but have always wanted to try the black outlined designs. Don't know where to start. BEAUTIFUL cookies as always!
