I bought a set of leaf-shaped cookie cutters last month to make pretty shapes for the top of our wedding pies. I was really happy with the way they turned out, so I'll be using them for all of our holiday pies too. And for lots and lots of leaf-shaped cookies.
Yesterday was cold, so I baked a batch of these sugar cookies in an effort to warm things up. I seriously can't believe how quickly things are cooling down around here. All of our windows are perma-closed now, and I'm feeling a bit underlayered, like maybe I need to make myself a bunch of socks and scarves and hats before winter.
Now that we're inside all day, our home is feeling a little grimy and cluttered, so I'm on a mission to get things in order. Our kitchen is the only room in our home that I don't want to completely rearrange and scrub down. Anyone else in fall-cleaning mode?
