Candy Corn Butter Cookies

I made these colorful Candy Corn Butter cookies the other day to go with my newest giveaway for a Kitchen Aid Mixer. I’m in another giveaway called Bake In Color and it immediately made me think of this colorful cookie! Go on over to That’s My Home to enter. I made a version of these last Christmas and they were a hit so I decided to repeat it again for Halloween using Halloween colors.
