Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

I'm back to blogging and I have this awesome sweet treat to share with you, just in time for Halloween!  I saw this recipe in several different versions floating around Pinterest and new that I wanted to try it. You all know that I love a good sugar cookie.  And holidays are a great time to bake :)  So enjoy these Candy Corn Sugar Cookies!


Candy Corn Sugar Cookies
Recipe adapted form Six Sisters
Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 cups flour
  • orange food coloring
  • yellow food coloring

Directions: 
Begin by creaming the butter, eggs and sugar.  Mix in the baking powder, vanilla, baking soda, salt, and sour cream.  Mix until well blended.  Slowly add in the flour.  The dough should not be too sticky, if it is sticky, slowly add in a little more flour.  Divide the dough into 3 equal parts.  Leave on part plain.  Dye one part yellow with food coloring. Dye the final part orange.  (Hint, use your stand mixer to color the dough.  If you do the yellow first, then you can do the orange second and use yellow and red to make orange)
Line a bread load pan with waxed paper.  Dust your hands with flour to keep the dough from sticking to them. Layer the bottom of the pan with the plain colored dough.  It should be about an inch thick.  The dough may not reach all the way down the pan and that's ok.  Next, layer in the orange dough and spread evenly over the plain layer.  Smooth the dough as best you can.  Finally add the yellow layer.  Fold the edges of the wax paper across the top and place the loaf pan in the feezer.  Freeze at least two hours (or for better results, freeze overnight)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. 
Remove from the freezer and pull on edges of wax paper to get the dough out.  Slice the dough into quarter inch slices.  

Then cut triangles back and forth.  You should be able to get at least six triangles from each slice.


Keep dough that you are not working with in the freezer to make it easier to handle.  
Place triangles on a cookie sheet and dust with sugar.  Bake for 9-10 minutes.
