Here’s something fun to try with your kids this fall… Candy Corn Cookies. No real candy corn is involved :) They were easy and always turn out so cute!
You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe. We always use Grammy Snelling’s sugar cookie dough.
When your cookie dough is finished, divide it into 3 portions. Then use gel food coloring to make the orange and yellow sections. I make a slightly larger amount yellow, then some orange, leaving a smaller portion plain white.
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.
Carefully cut into thin slices:
Cut each slice into little triangles. They’re already looking like “candy corn.” Dust with sprinkles or sugar and bake per your recipe’s instructions.
