CookieCrazie's Week in Review



Personal Side

It's been a series of ups and downs this week.

Sometimes life is hard.

These last few days have been filled with difficult stuff.

But by the grace of God.....we will carry on with joy.

This last weekend I worked on Thanksgiving cookies.

You know me.....gotta keep ahead.

It was fun to do some unique shapes and sets.

I really enjoyed getting back into decorating.

I've missed it a ton.

This weekend I'm moving on to the next holiday after Thanksgiving.

It's crazy to be making them in September, but what's new?

I'm needing to get ahead for multiple reasons.

There's lots coming up in the next few weeks/months.

If I have everything for the blog solid through the end of the year,

it will allow me the freedom to accomplish planning and implementation of a ton of other projects.

Come on fall weather.....we're still waiting for you! :)


Instagram photos for this week:

It's September.....time to focus on autumn. :)

Fall is in the air......or at least I'm dreaming it is.

I even put up my harvest decorations in the house yesterday.

Happy Sunday!

An autumn neighborhood scene......I'm already planning a Christmas one. :)

Apple Branch Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

Since it is apple pickin' time, apple branch cookies seemed appropriate.

I used Creative Cookier's Nest-on-a-Branch cutter to create these cookies.

When the nest is turned upside-down, there is room to pipe some apples growing off the branch. :)

To give the apples a 3D look, I added balls of cookie dough to represent the apples.

(see photo below)

 After the cookies have baked and cooled, outline and flood red glaze onto the round shapes.

 (see photo below)

Next, add brown glaze to form the large branch with twigs.

After 15 minutes of dry time, add some additional branch lines.

After an hour of dry time, use a toothpick or boo-boo stick to imprint branch lines.

Add leaves and stems to the apples.

Allow the cookies to dry overnight.

If desired, paint on darker and lighter brown food color shades to make the branches look more realistic.
