Woodland Fall Decorated Cookie Collection

Remember the warning about my obsession with autumn cookies....... here's my THIRD set of the season. And this is by far is my favorite. Those colors......and those molded clay pieces.....LOVE!

Cookie decorating doesn't have to be super complex. Using lots of silicone molds with edible clay allows you to create extraordinary cookies without exhausting effort. There seems to be a growing demand for molds......and therefore....so many new ones to choose from. I found a wonderful source for silicone molds HERE. Check them out!

My last (and favorite) fall set of the season.....promise!

Finn's Lumberjack First Birthday Decorated Cookie Collection

It's hard to believe, but my first grandchild has turned one year old already! He was born November 2016 and suddenly one year rapidly went past us, and he turned ONE! Wow.

My Finn (Finnegan Asher) is all boy. And he's super precious. (Spoken by a new grammy....) He was born premature (34 weeks) at 4.1 lbs and things were a bit scary on his birthday. My daughter was in critical condition and they had to deliver Finn in an emergency. But praise God, he has grown and developed well this last year and is all over the place now. You'd never know by looking at him that he was so small when he was born.

I've enjoyed decorating cookies for many many years now......but nothing tops making cookies for my grandbabies. What a joy it is to dive in there and create memorable cookies for their very special days. I count it such a privilege for the opportunity.

Happy Birthday Finn! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ  We love you so much. ❀️

Homespun Christmas Tree Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

This is one of my favorite Christmas cutters.
Several years ago, I designed this shape with some good cookie friends and the cutters were made in mass quantity. But eventually, they sold out of the cutter and it was hard to place another order. Thankfully, my good friends at Creative Cookier agreed to offer this shape in their shop. You can find the "Homespun Christmas Tree" cutter HERE

Refer to the video and photos below to learn how the two homespun tree designs were made.

And there you have it......two fun homespun Christmas tree cookie designs.

Pumpkin Patch Sign Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

Oh how I love all the rustic styling that is so appropriate for the harvest season!
Just the thought of all the wood and "antiqued"-looking decor makes me giddy. :)

The pumpkin patch is a favorite go-to place for folks to celebrate the season.
What better location to point out on an adorable sign cookie....

I wanted to incorporate the wood grain effect into this cute sign-shaped cutter from BobbisCookiesCutters on Etsy.

Β 

As you'll see on the video, I used two different impression mats to create the wood effect.
I pushed the mat face down into the dough and rolled the rolling pin over it to make a marked impression.
For the main post I used this woodgrain mat.
For the actual rectangular sign, I used this wood panel texture mat.
You'll need to cut out the sign within each pattern, but you'll trim the second one to include only the rectangular sign, and lay it on top of the first one.
(This explanation will only make sense once you've watched the video.)

After assembling the impressed dough to make the sign, bake it and cool it.
And then it's time to brush the entire surface with dry dust. First cover it with Golden Leaf dust, and then with Caramel dust. That combination gives an authentic wood color.
(This is also shown on the video.)

You can write anything on the sign you'd like.
Adding an embellishment like the mini pumpkin cookie (or piping a small one on with glaze icing), adds some rustic charm to the sign.

Autumn Textured Cookie Collage






Each time a theme pops in my head, I always want to include a cookie collage in the repertoire.
This autumn one doesn't really involve mixed media as some have,
but it has plenty of "mixed" textures. :)

This was my first chance to try out the new embossing folders.
And after this project, I'm hooked on them.


Fall Leaf Embossing Folder



Each piece was done in a different color and a different texture.
Some had colored glaze, some just had dust applied to beige glaze to give it additional color.
These is a myriad of things that can be done for this kind of project.
A new happy obsession......
