fall tree cookie bag

i miss the fall.
the colored leaves, the cool crisp air, the smell of pumpkins.

'round here it's green leaves, humid air and the smell of mosquito repellant.

i grew "up north" as people in FL say all the time, and lived there for 21 years before moving down here and boy oh boy, fall was one of my favorite seasons ever!

i'd move back north in a heartbeat but since i can't at the moment, i'm bringing fall down to my parts of the world.

with cookies.
and presentation nonetheless.
cuz fall is all about presentation with all it's glorious gorgeous color.

let's begin.




bake as directed, and as soon as they are outta the oven, 
do this:
i waited til they were too cool and then cut them like a dummy cuz i was multitasking and forgot to do it right away, 
thus the crumbs.
but it still worked out.

betcha thought spoon and cookies wouldn't go together huh?
my brain is weird.
hey look what you just planted.

so if fall isn't in your neck of the woods, or even if it is, how'd you like to jump in a pile of cookie leaves?
see ya there.

  2. Hi Lisa - How absolutely brilliant to mush... or was it smush? the colors together to look just like the changing leaves! Happy Fall! Hugs, Holly

  3. What a cute idea - that tree is perfect for fall - all the leaves contained in the bag so no raking - Only eating!!

  9. Very clever! I love fall too and these cookies really are a nice seasonal touch. I'd make just a plate of leaves to put out, but I have cats and am trying to figure out why there are little paw prints on the counter in the morning when they all look at me directly and swear they don't jump up there!
