Fall Leaves Sugar Cookies
Here's an easy recipe that's perfect for fall sugar cookies. This is a great recipe to make today because it's windy and all of the leaves are falling. You can find my Pinterest inspiration here.

-Use this recipe for sugar cookies
-Green, Red and Yellow food coloring
After making some Mike-a-Rita's and dinner last night I was not in the mood to make sugar cookie dough, but the link above in the Ingredients will take you to the recipe I typically use for sugar cookies. Instead I just used Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix. Mix your cookies and separate the dough into four separate bowls -- color one green, one red, one yellow and one orange using an equal combination of red/yellow coloring. I then put the dough in the refrigerator for like ten minutes.
|Use a lot of flour.|
|Get your dough ready.|
|Lay out small handfuls of dough in a patchwork pattern.|
|Use a well floured rolling pin and roll flat.|
|Using leaf shaped cookie cutters, cut out shapes and bake for 8-10 minutes.|
