Additional Information

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

In large bowl, cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla and almond extracts; mix well. Combine flour and baking powder; add to butter mixture, 1 cup at time, mixing well after each addition. Do not chill dough.

Step 3

Divide dough into 5 portions. Tint portions of dough orange, green, yellow and red; reserve some without coloring.

Step 4

For marbleized multi-color leaves, place 2 or 3 pieces of different tinted dough colors side by side; roll out dough about 1/4-inch thick. Cut with leaf cutters.

Step 5

For sugared leaves, roll out uncolored dough 1/4-inch thick. Cut with leaf cutters. Sprinkle, as desired, with colored sugar.

Step 6

To make veins on leaves, thin a small amount of dough with water to piping consistency; place in parchment or disposable decorating bag fitted with tip #3. Roll out tinted or plain dough about 1/4-inch thick. Cut with leaf cutters. Pipe leaf veins on cookies with thinned dough.

Step 7

For acorns, tint plain dough brown; roll out 1/4-inch thick. Cut cookies with acorn cutters. Decorate with jimmies.

Step 8

Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 7 to 8 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool completely on cooling grid.
