Fall Tree Cookies

You know what I wish?  (Besides world peace and skinny jeans that fit and stuff...) I wish someone would invent some kind of sticky something that actually works just how it is supposed to. See, I live in a pretty nice apartment in Korea. It's beautiful. I love it. Except that holiday decorations are basically NOT going to happen because you can't hang anything on a marble wall. (Yes...I have marble walls. Hate me if you like.) I have tried every kind of self-stick, non-permanent wall hanging device I can find in this country. Oh sure, they CLAIM to be able to hold up to 7 pounds and stick for a year...but THEY LIE. And, where I come from, lying is bad. Like, the kind of bad where you go to your room to think about what you've done, but you have to stay there for so long that everyone forgets about you and THAT is why you have puzzles hidden under your bed. And maybe a juice box.

So...my point is...we tried to decorate for Halloween today and we ended up with some wooden pumpkins on the table and a Happy Halloween sign being used as a tiara. Not really what I would consider ideal. Especially since I was NOT the one with the tiara. But we DO have fun fall cookies. Well, we did. Then we ate them all during our non-decoratable marble wall pity party.

My favorite time of the year is autumn, like it's about 250 times more awesome than winter, spring, and summer which all pretty awesome by their own right. And when it comes to autumn "stuff" there's nothing I love more than trees in the fall (pumpkins run a close second) and so I a-d-o-r-e these cookies. I love them so much I want to marry them were a) one able to marry cookies and b) were I not already married.

Once again, I make a curtesy of admiration in your direction.

Love your *artsy* fall tree cookies! They are excellent.

P.S. I bet if you used royal icing to stick things to your marble wall it would work! (Just Kidding... :)

I LOVE these cookies! I love that the leaves are big round circles. How did you do that? Not that I'd try it out if I knew how. I don't cook really. lol :)

You're such a great artist. Love these

Paula -- I should totally try that! I bet royal icing really would work better than anything else we've used. And as an added bonus -- we can lick the walls between holidays!

Pam -- The circles are super easy, actually. I just squeeze out some icing in a blob and it flattens into a beautiful circle. The tricky part is judging how far the blobs will spread. Hmmm...I'm starting to think I should stop using the word "blob" to describe my cookies.

Have you tried masking tape? They sell them in all sorts of pretty colors and widths in Korea, and I'm sure that masking tape can conquer even marble walls.
