Candy Corn Cookies
Halloween is right around the corner and I am just now posting my first recipe for it! These are so cute everyone will love them. You bake them in a 9 x 13 pan. Be sure to use parchment paper so you can lift the cookies out of the pan.
You can see how easy to cut these into candy corn shapes above. The ends are scraps but still good to eat. Then cut as shown above and you have candy corn shapes. Easy Peasy!
