Archive for the ‘Candy Corn Sugar Cookies’ Category

I got the idea for these cookies from Pinterest  last fall.  I only copied the candy corn design and not the recipe.  (I’don’t like lemon flavored deserts and the Pinterest recipe has lemon in it.)  Instead, I used my old-fashioned sugar cookie recipe because I knew it would be the perfect dough for me to obtain the same look.  Plus my kids love old-fashioned sugar cookies because they are so buttery, sugary and delicious!  

Warning – You may find yourself popping more than just one more of these bite sized little treats!


1 C butter (not margarine)

1 C sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

3 C all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt


In a large bowl cream butter with an electric mixer on medium speed.  Add sugar, egg and vanilla and beat until combined.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt and stir into the butter mixture.

Divide dough into 3 portions, leaving one white and dying one yellow and the other orange.  Layer these 3 portions in a greased bread, one at a time, by patting them down to cover each layer below it.  Dough will be thin.  Cover pan and chill for 3-4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350°.  Remove chilled dough from pan onto a cutting board and, using a good cutting knife, cut dough into 1/3″ thick slices.  I slice one row at a time then cut into little triangles resembling candy corn.  Place on cookie sheet about one inch apart, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 5-7 minutes or until bottoms are just turning a light golden color.

Cool on wire cookie sheet and enjoy!
