Candy Corn Sugar Cookies With Glace` Icing

29 Oct

I am so excited about these adorable little candy corn sugar cookies! Thankfully, I took lots of pictures when I had the chance, because these cookies are no more! These received rave reviews from my Hubby’s coworkers and our friends and neighbors! I love that I didn’t have to roll out any dough, or use any cookie cutters for these! This would be a great thing to make with older children who can help you color the dough, mold the dough, and of course, decorate!! While these cookies were drying on my counter my two year old daughter, who can reach anything she wants now, helped herself to a few cookies when I wasn’t looking! (She’s only two and has already earned quite an impressive record in the cookie thief department! Oh well, relax and let them eat a cookie, right?!)

 

Okay! Let’s begin!

 

First, prepare your favorite sugar cookie dough or the recipe below. Then split it into 3 equal parts.

Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving a long excess on one side. Press the white sugar cookie portion into the bottom of the loaf pan, making it as even as possible. (Use the excess plastic wrap so the dough doesn’t stick to your fingers.)

Color one portion of the dough orange, press into the loaf pan on top of the white, just like the white portion.

Color the last portion of your dough yellow. Press into the pan like the other two colors.

Wrap the dough with the plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but overnight is best.

After the dough has chilled, cut the loaf into 1/4 slices. Then cut 3 equal squares. Cut each square in half diagonally to get 6 triangles, like so.

Put the cookies on a baking sheet, then put in the freezer for 10 minutes before baking to help them keep their shape!

After baking, let the cookies cool 1 minute on the baking sheet before transferring them to the cooling rack to cool completely.

Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

Ingredients: Your Favorite Sugar Cookie Dough OR
2 Sticks Butter, softened
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Egg
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
2 Teaspoons Lemon Zest
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
Red Food Dye
Yellow Food Dye
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar (for dusting)
Directions:
Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt. Continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda, beat until well mixed. Divide dough into thirds. Press one-third of the white dough evenly into the bottom of a loaf pan that you have lined with foil, wax, or parchment paper. Place another one-third of the dough into a bowl and add yellow and red food dye to make orange (refer to the chart on the back of your box). Once it is mixed evenly, press orange dough evenly over white dough. In another bowl, add the final amount of dough and dye yellow. Press that evenly over the orange dough. Cover and refrigerate until firm (2 hours or overnight is best). Once chilled, invert your loaf pan and unwrap your dough. Flip it back over and place it on a cutting board. Cut loaf crosswise into 1/4-inch slices using a sharp knife, trimming edges to make even, if necessary. Cut each slice into 6 wedges. Place 1-inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 7-10 minutes in a pre-heated 375 degree oven. Place cookies straight into a bowl with sugar and coat. Place coated cookies on a baking rack to cool.

After the cookies were completely cooled, I dipped them in this Glace` Decorating Icing! Click over to read the icing recipe!
Before the icing is completely dry, either roll the edges of the cookies on the wax paper or run a toothpick around the edge of the cookie to remove excess icing!
Add sprinkles before the icing dries, if desired!
