AUTUMN COOKIES/ My Favorite



I love pastels and bright colors but Autumn is the time of year when the colors of the season bust out all over: golds, oranges, greens, reds and browns. It is when we pull out the sweaters, corduroys and jackets. It has always been my favorite of the four seasons … October baseball, football, apples, pumpkins, mums, crisp air and colorful foliage. My favorite thing about Autumn is found outdoors; beautiful gardens full of pumpkins of all sizes, multi-colored nums and the beauty of the changing leaves. It is the ideal time for weekend drives in the country usually to a favorite Virginia winery. It would be fine with me if Autumn lasted for 12 months.

We are nearly halfway through October and I am finally getting to my autumn cookies. It took me awhile to create a design and I finally decided on a simple plaque cookie with mini pumpkins decorated in traditional fall colors.

Check out my Autumn Pinterest page.
