Celebrate the season with these cute cookies. Cut the sugar cookies into oval or leaves. Use a cookie cutter to get a precise edge. Frosted the cookies in fall colors, such as brown, orange, red, and yellow.
Mini Pumpkin Pies
After you bake circle shaped cookies, cut some of the treats into fourths. Leave a few as complete spheres. The pieces will look like parts of a pie, while the whole cookies will look like the full un-cut version. Frost the “pies” with orange icing. Add dabs and dots of whipped cream to the top.
