Candy Corn Cookies


Happy Monday Lovelies!

Hope you've all had a top weekend! Now as Halloween is fast approaching, I thought it was time to start practicing some fun sugary recipes for the big event.

So this Monday is all about the C's! Yes Candy Corn Cookies! What better way to start the week than with biscuity goodness full of orange and yellow sweets. Not forgetting the white chocolate chips!

Candy Corn Cookies




So here's what you'll need to make these crazy cookies: 

Makes 12

4 Tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 egg yolk
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
1/2 cup of candy corn sweets


And here are the directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking sheet. I always use spray oil, quick and easy! 

2. Combine butter and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Next beat in the egg yolk, baking powder and vanilla extract. Then add in the flour, it should start to form a dough.

3. Spoon out balls of cookie dough, place on baking sheet and flatten. Leave about 2 inches apart. A top tip is to make sure that the candy corn is not touching the base, as these have a habit of melting and then will stick to your baking sheet. To avoid this try to dot the candy corns in the middle and on top. You should get around 12 cookies.

4. Pop the baking sheet in the oven for 9-10 minutes. The cookies can look uncooked but you will notice the edges starting to crisp slightly. Remove them at this stage as they will crisp up out of the oven.

5. Leave on baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire rack. 

6. Enjoy your candy corn cookies!

    1. They're definitely a fun treat for Halloween, I've never seen candy corn in the UK but somewhere like an old fashioned sweet store might stock American candy! x
