Watercolor Fall Leaf Cookies
The obsession is real. This watercolor technique is my new favorite, hence why you are seeing it in just about every other cookie post lately.
And while I may be going a bit overboard with it, I think it’s the absolute perfect decorating technique for making Fall leaf cookies.
I have tried making multi color Fall leaf cookies with royal icing in the past and they come out looking VERY artificial. This watercolor technique blends the colors together perfectly for a more natural, and, frankly, much prettier cookie.
What You Need
You will need:
Sugar cookies cut out into leaves and pumpkins
A batch of royal icing (uncolored or tinted white) split so that >80% is flood consistency, and <20% is piping consistency
Piping bags or zip top sandwich bags
A scribe tool or toothpick
A clear alcohol, such as vodka or Everclear
How to Make Them
If you are looking for a fun Fall activity to do with kids, this is it! This painting technique is so easy and I think the kids would have so much fun painting their own leaves. Just don’t let them go overboard adding alcohol to the tops of the cookies, otherwise the icing could start to erode.
Otherwise, just have fun with it!
