How to Make Cute Little Acorn Cookies
See the acorn cookies in the photo below? Those pretty colors can’t even begin to ‘shake a stick’ at the colorful fall leaves here in East Tennessee. They aren’t showing us all of their fall colors yet, but they’re getting closer every day. And I can’t wait to grab the camera and start taking pictures for more cookie color inspiration.
Just a little side note here, these acorn cookies taste way better than the fall leaves. Trust me.

- Make the cookie dough, cut out the shapes, and bake them according to the recipe directions.
- Let the cookies dry completely before you decorate them.
- Outline the bottom of the acorn with the light blue royal icing.
- Flood it with the same color of royal icing.
- With the white royal icing, add three dots while the blue royal icing is wet. This technique is called wet on wet and when it dries, the surface will be flat. If you wait until the blue royal icing is dry, the white dots will stand on the icing. I did it both ways on the acorn cookies so you can choose which way you like it.
