I just wanted to share the recipe and pics of my favortie fall cookies. They are a spiced sugar cookie! We are big fans of spices around here so they are always a hit.

Favorite fall cookies!

1 cup butter (no substitutes) softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon ground mace
1/8 teaspoon salt

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in the egg, sour cream, honey, and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture slowly. Mix until you have a dough. Chill at least 2 hours. Roll out on a lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters and bake at 325 degrees for 80-10 minutes.

I like to frost them with an easy frosting.

1 cup Crisco
4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
and enough water or orange juice to make it into the frosting consistency.
I like to beat it with my hand mixer to make it fluffy.
It can be tinted too.

Notice the red/pink, orange, yellow, and what I am calling zombie flesh tone.  Cheesy

Here is a pic of some that are about to hit the oven. I like to use my fall leaves, sun, moon, and stars, and acorns. I even make turkeys sometimes.  Cheesy

And here are some that are baked and frosted and ready to display on my cake plate.

Enjoy! If you make them let me know how you liked them!  Wink

I love those! We're planning on making them for Thanksgiving dinner with the family next weekend. Cheesy
