Bake the cookies up to five days ahead, and store in an airtight container. To make our wind cookies and leaf cookies, we used round cutters and swirly piping to represent the wind, and various sizes of leaf-shaped cutters for fluttering foliage.
Celebrate Halloween by tinting one-third of the filling with orange food coloring and one-third with yellow food coloring; keep one-third white. You can also flavor the colored fillings with 1 tsp. of your favorite extract, such as orange or almond. For adults-only cookies, stir 1 Tbsp. bourbon or rum into filling before dividing to tint.
