Candy Corn Cookies

Posted on October 31, 2011



My daughter has been making these little cookies for the last several years.  They are delicious and to festive!

1 cube butter, softened

1 c. sugar

2 large egg yolks

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. flour

1/2 c. cocoa powder

Beat sugar and butter together.  Add egg yolks, vanilla, baking powder, & salt.  Beat.  Add flour and cocoa powder and mix.

Roll into small balls, about 1 tsp. Place on baking sheet.  Take out when the cookies are set, but not brown.  You don’t want to overcook.  Probably 8-9 minutes.  In my convection oven it is only about 6 minutes.  Right when you take them out of the oven press a candy corn into the middle.  Allow to cool for a few more minutes, then transfer to a rack.
