Woodland Sugar Cookies

Where I live, summer didn’t gradually bleed into fall.  It abruptly ended with no warning and no gently goodbye.  Usually our Septembers are cool in the morning, reaching mid-70s by the end of the day, but the week after Labor Day fall came in with the bang.  I think we were lucky to have a week of that weather the whole month.  Instead we ended up with lots of rain, wind, and mid-50 degree weather.

The good thing about the crummy fall weather is I don’t feel guilty staying inside baking.  Plus, it’s a good excuse not to have to rake the leaves that are falling in abundance.  (Every fall I lament about the leaf pick-up, as we have 3 large-leaf, 100-year-old maples surrounding our house.  They provide us with lots of shade in the summer, but a headache in autumn.  However, I think my husband is tired of hearing me complain, so I should probably just stop.  Maybe.  Below is a picture of one of trees.)

Anyway, I made woodland themed cookies with new cutter and new colors.

The foxes are using super red, which I wanted to look different than a Christmas red.

With the hedgehogs I used chocolate brown and espresso.  I am annoyed that an air bubble created holes on the feet of these guys, which didn’t appear that way when wet.  They’re still cute though.

And the owls I used navy blue and wedgewood, my new favorite color.

The weather here has begun to calm down.  October is shaping up to be normal and I like it.  Maybe I’ll go out and rake the leaves.  xoxo
