These cookies are just so adorable and I knew I had to try them when I saw them on the Betty Crocker site. They take some time to make so be prepared for that but they are not in the least bit hard to make.
If the directions aren’t clear ~ there is a Youtube video that shows how to make them and I’ll link it at the end.
Candy Corn Cookies
1 pouch sugar cookie mix
1/3 cup butter, melted
orange gel food coloring
1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted and cooled
Line an 8×4 loaf pan with parchment or waxed paper, making sure it extends over the sides of the pan.
In a medium bowl, stir the cookie mix, butter and egg together until a soft mix forms.
Place dough on work surface and divide into thirds. Take 1/3 and sort of shape it into the shape of the pan and place it in the pan; patting so that it covers the entire bottom of the pan as evenly as possible.
Take 1/3 of the dough and work the cooled chocolate into it with your hands, making sure the color is as even as possible. Shape into the shape of the pan and place on top of the white layer already in the pan, smoothing as much as you can.
Take the last 1/3 of the dough and work the orange gel coloring into it, shape into the shape of the pan and put on top of the chocolate layer, making as smooth as possible.
Cover the pan and place in the refrigerator for about 2 hours or until the dough is firm to the touch.
Heat oven to 375º.
Remove dough from pan and cut crosswise into 1/2 inch slice. Cut each slice into 5 wedges. Place on ungreased cookies sheet about 1 inch apart.
Bake 7-9 minutes or until set and lightly golden brown. Cool on pan for 1 minute then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Makes about 9 dozen small cookies.
