Autumn Leaf Cookies

Colorful sugar cookies are the perfect way to welcome fall! This simple twist of Pillsbury™ prepared sugar cookie dough will show you how!

Ingredients

1
tube Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1/2
cup flour
Betty Crocker™ gel food color (red, orange, yellow)
1/2
cup turbinado sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Sprinkle flour over Pillsbury™ sugar cookie dough, knead until well combined.
  • 3 Split dough into three equal portions. Place a teaspoon of red, orange, or yellow food gel onto each portion. Knead until the dough is fully colored.
  • 4 Tear small pieces of the dough off, roll into balls, then place each ball into a checkerboard pattern, making sure the colors are all mixed up. Pat the colored dough balls together.
  • 5 Sprinkle turbinado or sparkling sugar over the dough, then use a wooden rolling pin to roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 6 With a sharp knife, cut dough into teardrop-shaped leaves. Press the knife gently into the center of the leaf to create a leaf impression. Transfer each cookie to a baking sheet.

Leaf it to Us: Colorful Fall Cookies

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Red, yellow, orange and brown, all the leaves are falling ... onto your cookie plate!


Yep, it's that time of year. Leaves are turning colors and ovens are firing up. Here's the best way evah to combine the two with these colorful Autumn Leaf Cookies.

Start it off quick and easy! Grab yourself a tube of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough and open 'er up! How snazzy-simple is that for a first step?!

Start with Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough.

Because the out-of-the-package dough can be a leetle bit soft for making shaped cookies, we're going to knead a bit of flour into the dough in order to make it perfectly pliable for our every whim.

Knead a bit of flour into the dough.

Tear that dough into three parts, smoosh some colored gel right into it…

Divide dough into 3 balls and color each.

Then knead the gel through the dough to give it some seriously vibrant color. Feel free to add more gel coloring, as needed to make a great color once kneaded. Ha! Needed, kneaded.

Knead color into dough balls.

Now tear the colored dough into several 1-inch pieces. Roll them loosely into balls, then create a checkerboard-style layout with the dough.

Place balls together like this.

Use your fingers to blend the balls together slightly, then…

Pat the colors together.

Roll the dough out with a wooden rolling pin. Once it's about 1/2"  thick, sprinkle the top of the dough with turbinado or sparkling sugar, then…

Roll out the colored dough.

Roll the dough to about 1/4" thick.

Sprinkle sugar over dough.

Cut into leaves with a sharp knife. Drag the knife gently down the center of each leaf to create a line that will bake some authentic leafy impressionism.

Bake the leaf sugar cookies.

Bake. Cool. Get ready to drool!

Leaf sugar cookies ready to eat.

Then go share these deeelicious cookies with someone you love. Like….YOU! Aren't you positively loveable and brilliant at autumn baking? (Answer: Yes, yes you are.)
