This Eucalyptus Leaf cookie is the perfect accent cookie for all spring celebrations: Weddings and Bridal Showers, Mother's Day, Easter, Elegant Graduations, and more! Watch the tutorial and get THREE (3) tips for avoiding cracks and craters in the leaves!
When I decorated these cookies, I made them 3 ways...all one green color, a two-tone leaf, and a piped leaf accent. Check it out in the video!
These cookies look beautiful with the Rustic Easter set!
These are medium sized cookies (about 3.5"). For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-20 of these cookies. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.
Prepping the Royal Icing
For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).
These leaf cookies have 2 icing colors. l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
If you're making a full batch of these cookies, here is a breakdown of the icing by ounce:
6 oz Leaf Green (1 oz pipe and 5 oz flood)
**(you might need to split this if you're looking to do the two-tone leaf)
12 oz Bright White (1 oz pipe and 11 oz flood)
For a royal icing recipe and video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer.
I would be so flattered if you recreated these cookies!
