candy corn cookies

while we were in GA eden and her mimi made candy corn cookies.  and I documented the process.  it was an easy, fun activity for both of them.
here's how to make them.  you know, just in case you'd like to....or you need a fun last minute thanksgiving dessert idea.

start out with a tube of sugar cookie dough and mix in 1/2 cup of flour.  then separate the dough into 3 equal parts.  leave one of the parts alone...then use food coloring to dye one orange, and one yellow. 

then, roll them into long cylinder/rope shapes.  flour your surface and line them up together. then roll them together with a rolling pin so it looks like one long line of candy corn dough goodness.
slice them into triangle/candy corn shapes and bake them at 350 degrees until they are as done as you like them.  I prefer a softer cookie.  maybe 10 minutes?

then...enjoy! I think they are so cute.

Hi. I just saw these in a magazine--they very cute and looks like your kids had a fun time making them. We may need to try it.
