Apple Picking Cookies


In honor of apple picking time, I made these cookies for my church Activity Days girls and for my daughter's new teacher and of course I made some to share with my Food Critics (my family).  I just took a bite of a frozen one --- yum!  I love homemade frozen sugar cookies.



This is the last night for my Girard salad dressing giveaway -- a 4 pack of these premium dressings.  I had some Old Venice Italian for lunch -- it is one of my favorites.  Click HERE for the giveaway.

Click HERE for the sugar cookie recipe, Royal Icing recipe, and marbling technique.     I still have a lot to learn about Royal icing, but I really enjoy the creative part of decorating cookies -- it is relaxing to me.

Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.

I think your cookies are just yummy looking! I usually put the icing in a bag and pipe the outline. Put some zigzaggy lines in the center and smooth with a small icing knife. My outline is not usually the best in the world though!

The apple picking cookies are toooo cuuuute!!! I'm in love with sugar cookies and those are some of the yummiest I've seen in a while.
(Almost too cute to eat!...nah, I would suffer though;)

I love the green apple color mixed with the red! sooooo pretty. I would love a plateful of these from off your "apple tree". I just had one of your apples. It was cold and wonderful. Great variety.

Wow, those cookies really look professional just like Cheryl's Cookies (you can buy them online). Did you ever hear of them? Well, yours look like theirs, only better. ;)
Best,
Gloria
P.S. Love the way you did the little stems too!

They are so cute! What a sweetie you are giving these as a gift to the teacher. I wish your kids were in my classes when I was teaching!

Best wishes and happy weekend,
Natasha.

You and your sugar cookies... I think you should go into business. (Actually, I'm not kidding. I know someone who sells cookies as an online business. Yours are always so clever!)

My very favorite thing about this blog, besides the frequent use of the color red, is that you keep a littl theme going. I love things like that.

Those cookies look amazing!! I so would have eaten more than one bite. Off to check out the recipe!

These are adorable, as always. I've never tried a frozen homemade sugar cookie, but I believe you when you say it's good...I will have to try to remember this. Gosh, I'm now thinking about eating frozen cookies and getting really hungry. I bet they are still kinda chewy and not really frozen hard?
Whoever mentioned above that you could go into business is right...there are a lot of sellers on Etsy that sell baked goods, etc. The things you make always sound good, but look good too. One of my favorite cookies ever came from an Etsy seller.
