Autumn Leaf Sugar Cookies

When fall arrives, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is my favorite place to be for a picturesque color display. After a recent tunnel of trees color tour I became inspired to incorporate the colors I had seen, and decided to create some leaves of my own in the form of sugar cookies.  Make up a batch of your favorite sugar cookies, frost them, and allow the cookies to harden over night. Using edible color markers draw veins onto the leaves; allow 30 minutes to dry. Spray leaves with Wilton Color Mist -yellow followed by orange and lastly red.(I bought the edible markers and color mist at Michaels)
