Candy Corn Cookies

Candy Corn Cookies

After such a hot summer, it's nice to get back into the kitchen and turn the oven on for some baking. This is another cookie I often baked in the Fall, and loved bringing it to my children's school. It's much easier to do then the Fall Leaf Cookies but uses the same basic Sugar Cookie recipe many of you probably already have.

Divide the dough in four sections, put one aside, that will be the small “white” part. Take another quarter and divide into 3 pieces. Put 2 with the quarter that will be yellow, and one part for quarter that will be orange. If you are not sure how the colors on candy corn align, you’ll have to buy a bag of them like I did. (what I won’t do for research!)

These dough measurements are just estimates, you can always blend one color a bit into the other to make it work. Roll out the yellow in a long narrow rectangle about 1 inch high. Do the same with the orange, since there is less dough it won’t go as far, it will narrow as you build the layers, Roll the white and place on top. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze till firm. Cut into slices. I usually have to reshape them a bit as I put them on the cookies sheet. Make sure they don’t get too brown.

All the best,
