Have you made a lot of Leaf Cookies along your decorating journey? Me too! Year after year I have decorated hundreds of leaf cookies (see the bottom of this post for some additional leaf inspiration).
But now Ann Clark has released a NEW beautiful Hawthorn Leaf cookie cutter and I'm so excited to be decorating leaves again!
That is why I have decided to change up the colors AND explore 4 new fun textures and designs.
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 cookies have 6 icing colors (using 5 gels). I used Ivory, Mint, Gold, Tulip Red, and Buckeye Brown. 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
4 oz Tulip Red (1 oz pipe and 3 oz flood)
4 oz Mint Green (1 oz pipe and 3 oz flood)
4 oz Gold (1 oz pipe and 3 oz flood)
4 oz Ivory (1 oz pipe and 3 oz flood)
4 oz Dark Buckeye Brown (pipe only)
1 oz Light Buckeye Brown (1 oz pipe and 3 oz flood)

Does this icing color palette look familiar? I SHARED icing colors from this project with the Apple Harvest cookies!
I would be so flattered if you recreated these cookies!
