Simple Tropical Leaf Cookies

Simple accent cookies are a great way to stretch cookie platters.  They’re tasty and adorable but far less labor intensive than other designs.

One of my favorites are these simple tropical leaves.  They only take a minute to make and work with a variety of themes.  They can be made with a few different cutters such as a paisley, simple leaf, or football.

Ali's Animal CookiesTo make these leaves you will need:

  • Green 20-second icing

Begin by outlining half of the leaf with 20-second icing.

After the icing has set repeat the previous steps on the second half of the cookie.
