Autumn makes me want to use darker, bolder, slightly muted colors. These monogram cookies were made for the arrival of my friend Thavi's first baby, a sweet little girl. Thavi is a classy girl and I wanted these cookies to be just as classy. I also wanted to shy away from using the traditional pastels and pinks that are usually associated with baby girls so I opted for some bold jewel tones. Polka dots, stripes and swirl roses upped the cuteness factor.
What is your favorite part about fall? For me it's definitely the changing of the leaves, hot drinks, and dressing in layers.
