Autumn Leaf Tree Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

As I got out all my autumn cookie cutters and began to think about how to make something different this year, I notice how a plain leaf cutter could represent an autumn tree very well. 

Sadly, the cutter I used on these cookies doesn't appear to be available any longer. I've had it for many years....and even with an extensive search just now, I couldn't find it anywhere. But there are cutters available that are conducive to this design. Look for a leaf shape that has a pronounced bottom stem to serve as the "tree trunk".

Here's a set of cutters that could work well.


Refer to the video below to see the details on decorating these cookies.

Β 

Brush the surface of the cookie with some dry caramel dust to give it a nice background.

Using dark brown glaze, pipe a trunk and random branches all over the leaf shape.

Allow the glaze to dry for several hours.

Brush the entire cookie, except for the trunk portion with a thin layer of corn syrup.
Immediately sprinkle this sugar pearl fall mix by Sweets & Treats over the corn syrup and lightly push the pearls down into the sticky corn syrup.

A simple and lovely autumn tree in no time at all. :)
