Candy Corn Cookies ~ Tutorial

These cookies are SO very cute!  I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were also simple to make.  I hope some of you will give these tasty treats a shot as they are sure to be a hit wherever you serve them.

First, mix up a double batch of your favorite sugar cookie recipe.  I love this lemon one from the Kathie Cooks blog which is where I learned to make these adorable candy corns.

Then separate the dough into three equal-ish mounds.

Add food coloring to two of the mounds:  make one orange and one yellow.

Line something rectangular, such as a loaf pan or plastic container, with plastic wrap.  Layer the white dough, then orange, then yellow dough by pressing and stacking them.

Wrap in plastic then refrigerate until nice and solid. Slice the dough and then cut out triangles from your slices.

Arrange the triangles on parchment-lined cookie sheets.  I gave a little extra shaping to each of my triangles and I also flattened them out a bit so they don’t puff up as much when baking.

Bake.  Remove from the oven and dip in granulated sugar.  Let cool.  Serve!
