Step 2: How To Make Fall Leaf Stained Glass Cookies

Once you have prepared your sugar cookie dough, separate it into three equal sections. Add a few drops of red and ivory coloring to the first section, orange and ivory to the second, and yellow and ivory to the third. Knead each section of dough until the coloring is spread evenly throughout.  Note: you will want to wear gloves when kneading the dough, unless you want to walk around looking like a henna tattoo on your hands went horribly wrong.

Next, roll out each section of dough to your desired cookie thickness. Use your cookie cutters to cut the dough into circles, each one with a leaf cut out of the center. Place the cut dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet and set it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before baking. You can bake the cutout leaf centers separately to make matching mini colored leaves.
These look awesome! I love the stained glass technique with cookies!
