How to make painted cookie bites for Fall
light corn syrup, icing or frosting
Step One: Bake your cookies. Prepare your favorite cut-out cookie dough, cut out 1 1/2 inch circles, bake and let cool completely.Step Two: Cover cookies with fondant. Prepare marshmallow fondant, or use store-bought fondant. On a surface dusted with confectioner’s sugar to prevent sticking, take a handful of fondant and briefly knead until easily pliable. If the fondant gets too sticky from overhandling, let it rest at room temperature, uncovered, for fifteen minutes. It shouldn’t stick to your hands at all. Roll out the fondant to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out one 1 1/2-inch circle for each cookie. Adhere to the cookie with a brush of light corn syrup or a dab of icing or frosting. Use your hands to gently smooth the fondant on top of the cookie.
To paint the leaf, use a liner brush to paint the veins as shown. Take a new brush, dip the tip in red food coloring, and dab paint along the vein. With a new brush, dip the tip in orange food coloring, and dab paint around the red. Finish with yellow around the edges.
Happy baking and happy Fall to all! Thank you, Beth, for having me visit. – meaghan
