Paper Sweeties November Release + Yummy Cookie Idea

We love Maple Flavored Sugar Cookies!  Never tried them?  Well, you certainly should!  Dennis and I made leaf shaped ones the other day and tried something new.  Something I definitely recommend:  paint on the maple syrup!

Welcome to the first day of Paper Sweeties November Release.  Those yummy maple cookies needed an extra special gift wrap.

 I used the  wreath from the new Season of Love set to prettify my sweet little treat basket (a die from Papertrey Ink).  Isn't it lovely stamped in chocolate and highlighted with pearl pens and glitter?  It will be available in the Paper Sweeties store on Friday.  Now back to those cookies for a second:

Maple Sugar Cookies How-to

You can use your favorite Sugar Cookie recipe.  

Divide it into three or four balls and add food coloring, then mix the balls back together.  

Cut into leaf shapes and bake as usual.  

When they first come out of the oven, brush them generously with maple syrup and sprinkle with sugar.  

They glisten and smell divine!  They smell so good that Kitty Boy was going crazy (I think he thought we were making pancakes and bacon would be involved)!  Give it  a try - you will love them!

Be sure to visit the Paper Sweeties blog for all the new release details.  And come back tomorrow for another peek at the November Release.  See you then!
