Fall into the new School Year

The new school year started for us teachers today. Time to get ourselves in order. With every new year, I like to share a little treat with the various support staff who makes our jobs easier. Today, I baked these fall leaves and acorn cookies for the office staff!


I love vibrant colours! I think that is what I like most about the fall. If you were to ask me, Winter is my favorite season, but Fall is a close second. I remember all those years where my dad and I would go hiking through Sleeping Giant Provincial Park in the fall, and we would see all the colours. It was so beautiful! It still is, and it always makes me happy to see the leaves change.

Okay, I realize that it is not yet Fall, and that Summer is still in full swing (it is 32 C here), but I know that with the start of school, we must forget our love of sun and surf, and embrace the smell of death (of leaves and grass). I honestly just wanted to play with my cutters.



When I started the cookies, I had an idea of polka dots, but I wanted it to look a little more like a leaf, so I made two different types. I loved the fall colours of Orange, Yellow and Red, so the colours reflect that look.

Pardon this last blurry picture. I even gave some of the acorn cookies polka dots. OHHHH, Colorful!

So, I hope that all of you have a great first day back (whenever that is), and that you stay safe and kids, watch for traffic!
