candy corn cookies..

they just look like candy corn...they taste like sugar cookies:) except for i just realized that i think i switched the yellow and orange layers in the candy corn cookies...ahhhh..well...you get the general idea. i saw this idea on our best bites yesterday and we just had to do it! wilton food coloring (or any gel food coloring i would assume) is what makes the colors so vibrant and pretty. it was a fun baking experience for my kids and their cousins..we did it together. then we made some orange dough for pumpkins:)

they are actually quite small and bite-sized and the cousins and my kids like them better then the big ones. it's a fun one, you should try it! here's my sugar cookie recipe if you don't have one you love, I LOVE this one i have been making them for years...is it weird when you can say that, that you've been doing something for YEARS and have it be true? i'm having a moment...anyway i think they are very tasty without frosting even! we make them anytime of year.

 Best Sugar Cookies EVER!
1 C. sugar
1/2 C. shortening
2 eggs
1/3 C. milk
1 t. vanilla
 1/2 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
3 C. flour

 cream shortening, sugar and eggs. beat well until light yellow and creamy. blend in milk and vanilla. combine dry ingredients in another bowl, add to batter. stir gently. add additional flour so it's not sticky, to form a soft dough. roll out on floured surface 1/4 inch thick, cut into any shape! bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. they should NOT be brown or anything like it on top, the bottoms should be golden, very light.
