In The Mood

The cool front that pushed through our area on Sunday put me in the mood to bake.


I have had these really cute fall cookie cutters for year, but never used them.  I love making cookies, but rolled and cut ones have never been my forte.


After making and chilling some sugar cookie dough in the refrigerator for a couple days, I got back in the kitchen and broke those cutters in.


The cookies look a little rough, but give me a little bit of a break.  I have never really done much with royal icing, and I somehow have lost all my pastry tips which would have made the job much easier.

Hopefully they will still taste okay.  Especially the acorns which I think are pretty cute.
