Candy Corn Cookies

The original idea is at "Our Best Bites" over here, and they look a LOT prettier, but this is to show that we tried Elizabeth's suggestion :) For some reason our dough was just too sticky to work with easily, but the cookies tasted just fine.Take your sugar cookie dough and tint 1/3 yellow and 1/3 orange, leaving the last third white. Layer in a loaf pan and chill.
Slice 1/4" thick. (You can trim the edges if you want.) Then cut into triangles and place on the cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with sugar and bake. We did 9 minutes at 350°.
Cute little cookies - much better than real candy corn (at least in my opinion)!

  1. Yes, way better than real candy corn! And since we aren't frosting lovers over here, they are an excellent frosting-free-but-still-cute-and-decorative cookie! I had the idea, too, that you could make Christmas tree ones with pretzel stick trunks coming out-- we'll have to see!
