Bake time: 15 minutes
10 – 15 cookies Servings
Ingredients
  • 1 package Sweet Loren’s Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 2 cups vanilla frosting or buttercream, homemade or store-bought
  • Natural orange & green food coloring
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and thaw Cookie Dough at room temperature so it becomes soft to touch.
  2. Work the softened dough into a ball then roll the dough flat, so it’s about a 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick. View photo

  3. Use a large leaf-shaped cookie cutter to start creating your cookies and place them onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Feel free to roll excess dough into a ball and flatten to make extra shapes. View photo

  5. Bake cookies between 8-13 minutes. Since ovens vary, check at the shortest time and add time as needed.
  6. Once cookies have baked, allow to cool completely.
  7. While the cookies are cooling, mix half of the icing with orange food coloring in a medium bowl. Mix the remaining icing in a separate bowl with the green food coloring.
  8. Spread the orange icing over a cooled & chilled cookie. Place leftover orange icing in a ziplock bag and snip 1/4-inch off the corner to create a makeshift piping bag. Pipe the icing on the cookie to create a leaf outline effect. Decorate half of the cookies with this orange design. View photo
