These homemade candy corn cookies are a lighter take on the popular fall candies with still replicating the flavors and aesthetic of the original desserts. These cookies are a larger form of the candies offering a fun, new take on the sweets.
While candy corn is a popular autumnal treat but it can often be too sweet for many with its sticky and sometimes chalky texture. That makes these candy corn cookies an ideal substitute with a lighter flavoring. The recipe calls for making three separate cookie doughs to die two of them orange and yellow. The dough is then stacked together and sliced into triangle wedges. When backed the colors keep their distinct shape creating the same gradient candy corn effect.
