Looking for a new take on a traditional Halloween treat? How about making these cute candy corn sugar cookies!
Look for orange candy sprinkles for these cookies.
It is hard to tell when these cookies are done. Take them out at the time given on the package, even if they look soft. They will firm up when cooled.
Separate your sugar cookie dough into three sections. Use about 1/5 of the dough for one section, and separate the remaining dough into two equal sections.
Add your yellow food coloring and orange food coloring to the two largest dough sections. If you want your cookies bright, be generous with the food coloring.
Shape your dough into long rectangles.
Stack the dough in candy corn order, yellow on the bottom, followed by orange, and finally white on the top.
Turn the stack on it's side and shape into a triangle.
Slice into "candy corns." Bake at 350 degrees on an ungreased cookie sheet, placing the cookies 2 inches apart.
During baking the cookies will spread. While cookies are still warm out of the oven, trim edges into more of a candy corn shape using a pizza cutter.
