Candy Corn - the most controversial topic of Halloween.
Depending on who you talk to, some people think candy corn is the best thing since sliced bread...while others think it's bottom of the barrel candy. FORTUNATELY, I think most of us can agree on sugar cookies. ;)
These sugar cookies are such a cute treat to make for Halloween and yield roughly 60 small cookies! That's more than enough to share with friends at your upcoming Halloween party, or as a cute trick or treat loop bag for the special kiddos in your life.
No need to have heated debates about candy corn when you can make sugar cookies! Problem solved.
Visual Baking Instructions
If you're a visual learner like me, following a wordy recipe may not give you the whole picture (literally)!! Here are some visual baking instructions to help you make these sugar cookies!
Step 1: After mixing all your ingredients, kneading them into balls, adding food colouring, and then rolling them flat, stack the flattened balls of dough onto each other in the following order: white, orange, yellow.
I cut off the edges to make it easier to work with, as you can see here:
Step 2: With your floured knife, slice about 1 cm wide strips of the slacked dough. Once you have cut the strips, place them on their side so that you can see all three colours. Then gently roll them out with a rolling pin.
Step 3: Cut the strips into triangles!
Step 4: Toss the candy corn cookies in a small bowl with sugar.
Step 5: Add the cookies to the parchment lined baking sheet then bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
Voila - you have plenty of candy corn sugar cookies to share with your family and friends! :)
