Food Art: A Fall Leaf Fruit Tree

We are quickly nearing the end of summer, and fall will be here before we know it! Fall just happens to be my favorite season of the year. I love the warm breezes, the beautiful evenings and most of all, the colorful leaves.

To me, nothing is prettier than falling leaves in gorgeous reds, oranges and yellows.  This delicious Fall Leaf Fruit Tree is a fun snack to serve your kids on a beautiful autumn day.  Invest in a small leaf-shaped cookie cutter and you can whip up this cute snack in minutes.
