- 1 c all-purpose flour
- 1/2 c unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2/3 c confectioners’ sugar
- 4 large egg whites, at room temperature
Sift flour into a mixing bowl, and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium speed, until well-combined, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg whites, one at a time, beating for 4 minutes after each addition. Add the reserved flour, and mix until just combined.
Divide the batter in two, color ½ with yellow food coloring and the other with orange food color.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut stencils shaped like maple and oak leaves from plastic takeout lids. Place the stencils on a baking sheet lined with a nonstick baking mat. Form the cookies by dropping a ½ spoon of yellow and orange batter a thin layer of dough inside the open part of the stencil and spreading thin layer over the stencil.
After removing the stencils form, bake for 4 mins.
Quickly remove the cookies from the pan and using spatula, drape leaves over the egg carton to cool in to twisted shapes.
