Vickie's Candy Corn Cookies
Fall is in the air, leaves are changing color and the holiday season begins with ghouls and goblins trick-or-treating around their neighborhood. Help them celebrate with a fanciful holiday cookie they'll love to help you make.
 
Preparation Time: 1 hour
Serving Size: 50+ little cookies

Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ c Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tspn baking soda
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 2 ½ c All purpose Flour
  • 1 c Margarine - softened
  • 1 ½ tspn Vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • ½ c melted chocolate (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
  • Orange food coloring (you can mix yellow and red to make orange)
Directions:
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix with a dry spoon.
  • Add wet ingredients and mix thoroughly
  • Roll into a small log and cut dough into 3 evenly divided sections. Set 2 aside.
  • Shape one cut slice into a ball and sit in a medium mixing bowl. Using 3 or 4 fingers, press a small hole/ditch into the dough.
  • Place about 15 to 20 drops of orange food coloring into the ditch. Close the ball onto itself and knead dough to mix the coloring thoroughly through out the ball. Then set aside.
  • Take a second slice and shape into a small bowl, placing the small ditch in the ball.
  • Pour melted chocolate into the ditch and kneed dough to thoroughly mix the color through the entire ball. (Be careful here, melted chocolate is VERY hot. You may want to let it cool slightly before kneading dough).
  • Set this ball aside.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the orange dough ball into a well formed 9 x 9 square. Dough should be about ½ inch thick.
  • Place on a piece of wax paper that is large enough to hold the dough.
  • Take the chocolate ball and roll out into the same sized square. Place the chocolate square directly on top of the orange square.
  • Take the white dough ball and roll out into the same sized square. Place the white square directly on top of the chocolate square.
  • Place a piece of wax paper on top of the dough squares and lightly roll a rolling pin over the top to push the 3 pieces together.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Once dough has been set, place on a large cutting board.
  • Use a long knife to cut the square long ways into ½ inch slices.
  • Pull each slice aside one at a time and lay flat on the cutting board.
  • Cut each slice into 1 inch squares. Then cut the square into triangles.
  • Repeat this process until all the square slices have been cut into triangles.
  • Place triangle cookies onto an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10min; or until edges turn slightly brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack or paper towels.
Serve:
  • Warm or Cold
Alternative:
  • You can sprinkle a small amount of granulated sugar onto the top of each cookie for texture and decoration.
