CANDY CORN SUGAR COOKIES





 Ingredients

2 ¾ cup of flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

½ teaspoon of baking powder

½ teaspoon of salt

1 cup of butter softened

1 ½ cups of sugar

1 egg room temperature

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

½ cup of candy corn

½ cup of caramel chips


Instructions


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar, about 4 minutes using a hand mixer.

Add egg and vanilla to butter mixture and mix together. Slowly add in flour mixture, reserving 2 tablespoons of flour mixture. Do not over mix.

Toss candy corn and caramel chips with the 2 tablespoons of flour. Add caramel chips to cookie mixture.

To a well greased pan, add 2 tablespoons of cookie dough for jumbo cookies, or 1 ½ teaspoons for regular sized cookies. Top with candy corn.

Bake jumbo cookies for 13-15 minutes or until edges become slightly golden brown. Bake regular cookies for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool fully before serving.

Makes about 12 jumbo cookies and about 24 regular cookies.

Tip: If adding candy corn into the cookie dough, when spooning dough onto the cookie sheet, be sure to either have candy corn within the center of the ball or on top to keep the candy corn from melting onto the sheet.
