CANDY CORN COOKIES/ Trick or Treat



Believe it or not, it’s that time of year again! When kids big and small hunt for the perfect Halloween costume, merchants stock up on candy and neighborhood yards are decorated with goblins, ghosts and cobwebs.

What is the most traditional Halloween candy? Of course, it’s Candy Corn. That waxy, tri-colored kernel that evokes childhood memories. If it’s one of your favorite candies check out these Candy Corn cookies which are on my annual to bake list for this cookie decorator. Last year I used the heart cutter for Candy Corn. The shape used this year was an Easter egg cutter and I jazzed it up with a fancy border. This is a fun and simple cookie to decorate.

    1. Anne, Thank you. Candy corn brings fun, childhood Halloween memories to mind and hence, the smile. One of my nephews loves candy corn and was so excited when I made these cookies last year, so I'm saving some for him. The rest were sent into my husband's office. I have more fun Halloween cookies coming in future posts. Thanks for your visit.
