Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

Candy corn cookies--- ThePrairieCottage

Time again for candy corn cookies!  The weather has been plenty cold enough around here for cookie baking and these are so fun for fall.  No mad frosting/decorating skills required…

Candy Corn Cookie Slices ... the Prairie Cottage

Start by making a batch of your favorite roll-out sugar cookie dough recipe. I always use my Grammy’s Danish sugar cookie recipe

Divide dough into 3 parts… slightly over half for orange, about one-third for yellow and the smallest amount is left plain. Using gel food coloring for the orange and yellow portions, knead it into the dough.

Form into three long rectangles.  Stack the orange rectangle onto the yellow.  Then shape the white (plain) dough and perch it on top.  Shape and pinch the dough until it resembles a triangle.  It doesn’t have to be perfect –

Cover completely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30-60 minutes.  Slice thinly and bake, following your recipe’s baking instructions.
