Candy Corn Cookies

Just in time for Halloween. Easy, super cute

 Candy Corn Cookies.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Orange Food Coloring (if you dont have orange you can make it with red and yellow food coloring)
  • Yellow Food Coloring


step 1

In large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition; add vanilla. Add flour mixture and beat on low until just combined.

step 2

Divide dough into thirds. Place one-third of dough into 4 in. by 4 in. square; wrap in plastic wrap and set aside.  Place another one-third of dough into another medium bowl. Add small amount of yellow food color; mix until color is well blended. Form yellow colored dough into 4 in. by 4 in. square and wrap in plastic wrap. Place remaining one-third of dough back into bowl. Add small amount of orange food color; mix until color is well blended.  Form orange colored dough into 4 in. by 4 in. square and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate all three doughs at least 30 minutes.

step 3

Line bottom and sides of 9x5-inch loaf pan with waxed paper or plastic food wrap.  Press the white dough evenly onto bottom of prepared pan. Press orange dough evenly over white dough in pan. Press yellow dough evenly over orange dough in pan. Cover with plastic food wrap; refrigerate until firm (at least 3 hours or overnight).

step 4

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. .

step 5

 Invert loaf pan to remove dough. Peel off waxed paper. Place layered dough onto cutting surface. Cut loaf crosswise into 1/4-inch slices using sharp knife, trimming edges to make even, if necessary. Cut each slice into 6 wedges. Place 1-inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until vanilla dough is lightly golden.
