If you do not have a cookie cutter that does this shape you can copy it from real life and make a templet of card board or quilting templet plastic and just cut around the pattern with an knife.

You could also make them pumpkins, or anything you wish, gourds would be easy.

How to Make Autumn Leaves


  1. Heat the oven to 375°. Whisk one egg with a teaspoon of water and set it aside.

    Mix chocolate chips and peanut butter chips together and set aside.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out a prepared pie crust so it's about 1/8-inch thick. Use a large leaf-shaped cookie cutter (ours is 4 1/2-inches wide) to make as many dough leaf pairs as possible.
  3. For each pocket, spread about 4 teaspoons of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips on a leaf, leaving a 1/2-inch margin at the edge. Brush egg wash onto the edge, place a second leaf on top, and press the edges to seal.
  4. Brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle it generously with raw sugar. Bake the leaves on a parchment-covered cookie sheet until their edges are just beginning to brown, about 12 minutes. Let them rest on the sheet a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
