Fall leaf cookies

Maple and oak leaf sugar cookies with royal icing. The cookies are made with honey granules instead of sugar. The brown leaves have orange flavored icing, the red leaves have vanilla flavored icing, and the orange leaves have almond flavored icing. I used a toothpick to drag contrasting colors into patterns on some of the leaves. On others, I used one solid color and sprinkled raw sugar on top, which soaked up the color in the icing.
