Halloween Sugar Cookies

1 Comment

I found this recipe in Everyday Food magazine and found it to be a super easy recipe and one that doesn’t make a ton of cookies.  I doubled the recipe and got 3 dozen ~ which is perfect for us.  The version I am putting here is the DOUBLED version.

Halloween Sugar Cookies

Halloween Sugar Cookies

8 tbsps butter, very soft
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
about 36 candy corns

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a medium bowl, mix butter and sugar until well combined. Add yolks, vanilla,  baking powder and salt. Add flour and mix until dough forms.

Scoop out level tbsps of dough and roll into balls in your hands. Place balls on ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.

Bake until edges are  firm and just beginning to turn light brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.

Remove from the oven and gently press a candy corn into the center of each cookie. Cool cookies on sheets for 1 minute and then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Makes about 36 cookies.

Happy Halloween!
