Fall Leaves with Ice Cream.. cooking at A Cup of Sparkle kitchen.

Fall is when we realize the leaves outside most, when they start changing colors. When the green leaves turn into yellow, golden and red that is the time to welcome the most romantic season of all: Fall.  It is such a wonderful time of the year! But most of all; it is also the time to open the fall cooking season in the kitchen with some baked goods..
Yum! Autumn leaves ice-cream sandwich cookies... Aren't those look fantastic?

September is just around the corner and you can definitely catch the glimpse of fall in Pacific Northwest. I am still not ready for the cool weathers though after the late summer. That is my excuse to add a scoop of ice-cream to my early fall cooking today.

Cookies are one of the easiest and fastest things to make. However, there is a special secret to this leaves cookies. It has a handtouch of the nature! Simple, cheap and fun!

Pick a large old leaf with distinct veins- I picked a leaf from my hydrangea flower. Simply, use the leaf as a cookie print. Then, use a cookie cutter to create a leaf piece. My cookie recipe is simple with using less butter (I always cut from the butter from all the online recipes I use) and with a little bit of cinnamon.
Once the cookies are cooked, I added a scoop of ice cream in between two cookies and put them in the freezer. My hubby and I truly enjoyed these delicious fall cookies this evening after shopping at Costco...

I hope my little, simple recipe brought you some inspiration inside or outside of the kitchen. Have a fantastic month of September and enjoy the last day of the August my lovely readers...
