Fall is such an anticipatory season. We anticipate the series of holidays, family time and memory making that all starts with autumn. There are so many opportunities (parties) to share these charming fall dessert cookie idea treats. These autumn cookies are super easy to make, but are sure to wow. This is a fun cookie decorating activity to do with children.
Seriously, how cute are these Indian corn cookies?! My entire family of 7, aged 12 through 80, were raving over how cute they were. And they taste yummy, too!
Autumn brings so many fall dessert opportunities:
- Neighborhood Parties
- Fall Picnics
- School Parties
- Bake Sales
- Lunchbox Treats
- Halloween Parties
- Thanksgiving Parties
- Gifts for Family, Friends and Coworkers

You can make these autumn cookies using my favorite decorated sugar cookie recipe or using store bought sugar cookie dough. While my sugar cookie recipe is easy to make, don’t worry if you’re too busy, just grab the store bought dough and don’t look back.
The secret to this harvest cookie idea is using a Christmas ornament cookie cutter (and this one is made in the USA)! Don’t you just love that? Now you can use one cookie cutter for two different seasons.

That’s it. So very easy. So very cute. So very delicious.
Making these cookies with your kids is a fun afternoon activity. And you really can’t go wrong decorating them. Just call them modern art if you need to and enjoy spending time together (and scrumptious fall desserts!).
