Optional:

To make nice round cookies,  roll dough into balls, place on cookie sheet and flatten each ball. If the dough is sticky, place in the fridge for 15 minutes before rolling into balls. I dip a spoon into flour and use to flatten into the round cookies.

To Frost:

  1.  and food coloring to create the decorating colors you'd like to use.
  2. I mix each color in a small bowl and then scoop frosting into plastic bags with frosting tips.
  3. Draw the decorations on baked cookies. I use the same drawing techniques as used for royal icing. Draw the outline of the design first and then fill in. Layer different frosting colors for a fun fall look.
  4. I created leaves, stripes, dots in yellow, orange and red to create these fun fall cake mix cookies. You could also draw cute pumpkins, candy corn or other fall designs… get creative and have fun with it!
