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!

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. Whoa.

There are just no words to describe it!

There are two cookies (and only two) that I like to dunk.  One is a good old fashioned homemade Toll House cookie and the other is an Oreo.  I try not bake or buy these very often as I have little to no self control when it comes to eating these goodies.

My good friend, Ang, posted a recipe on her FaceBook page for (are you sitting?) Oreo-stuffed Toll House cookies!  Oh. My.

Here’s what my family had to say about them. Video of family gobbling cookies!

I didn’t follow any recipe ~ just used my traditional Toll House cookie batter and smooshed it around a plain Oreo.  After I had them all formed I stuck them in the freezer to firm up a bit so they’d retain their shape when baking. I baked them for the same 10-12 minutes I always do, at 350 degrees.

Surround Oreo with dough.

If you’d like to make a fairly easy BIG statement at your next playdate, bring these!  In fact it’s a must.  Because if you leave them in your kitchen you’re sadly bound to devour a couple too many!
