We tried something new this fall with Grammy Snelling’s sugar cookie dough. Candy Corn Cookies. No real candy corn is involved :) They were easy and turned out so cute!
Use your favorite sugar cookie dough. Then divide it into 3 portions, the orange and yellow portions are a little larger than the white one. Then use gel food coloring to make the orange and yellow sections, leaving the smaller portion plain.
They look suspiciously like play dough at this point!
Fold a piece of wax paper or parchment paper so that it fits in a loaf pan. Smoosh the dough into the loaf pan… orange first, then yellow and finally the plain sugar dough. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just get your layers in there:
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is thoroughly chilled and firm. Remove and use the wax paper to help coax the dough loaf out of the pan.
Start slicing the dough into thin slices:
Then cut each slice into little triangles. Now you can see the little “candy corn.” Dust with sprinkles or sugar and bake per your recipe’s instructions.
Aww. They’s so cute!
