Seriously? Already? It’s happening, whether we like it or not. Can we discuss the cuteness of these Candy Corn Sugar Cookies?
Can we also take a moment to discuss my hatred toward candy corns? I know, hate is such a strong word. But when it comes to candy corns I think there are only two categories. Love and hate. Sorry, but I can’t STAND them. I was thinking about it the other day. How much money would somebody have to pay me to eat a candy corn? At least $50-$100. Bleh!! That chalky, sticky consistency that gets stuck in your teeth and leaves a film on your gums.
NO THANK YOU.
However, nothing screams Halloween more than candy corns! So… why not make a delicious cookie that looks like a candy corn but tastes completely different? Genius. And delicious.
With a few simple steps these little guys are surprisingly easy to make, and the dough can be made ahead, leaving you plenty of time on Halloween to make this chili. And cornbread, of course.
The great thing about this recipe is you can use YOUR favorite sugar cookie dough recipe. Even store bought if that’s easiest! Once the dough is made, divide it into three equal sections. Keep one section as is, and using food coloring, make one section orange, and one section yellow. Starting with the white section, press the dough firmly into a loaf pan. Next, layer the orange dough on top, and the yellow dough on top of that.
Pop the whole thing in the fridge for at least two hours, or up to two days. When you’re ready to bake, just slice…
and cut into triangles!
And you’ve got yourself the cutest Halloween cookies. EVER.
