Candy Corn Roll-Up Cookies

 Hey everyone...I haven't fallen off the face of the planet after all!
I made an impulse purchase at the grocery check out and bought Betty Crocker's Fall Baking cook book (or maybe it's a book-let...I never know what to call those things.)   This was the first recipe to catch my eye.


I thought they were as cute as they could be.  My only issue with the recipe is that it said it makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.  I think I got about 23 or 24.  I think they are quite tasty too.  The orange zest really gives them a nice flavor.



Here's the recipe...make and enjoy!


1 cup butter softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 egg
1 to 2 tablespoons orange zest
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Orange and Yellow gel food color

In a large bowl, beat butter, powdered sugar, egg and orange zest with an electric mixer on medium speed. Stir in flour, baking soda and cream of tartar.

Divide dough into thirds. Tint one portion orange and one portion yellow; leave remaining portion plain. Flatten each portion into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 20 minutes.

On a separate sheets of lightly floured waxed paper, roll each portion of dough into 12x9 inch rectangle. Place orange rectangle on top of the yellow rectangle, using waxed paper ends to help flip dough over. Top with the plain dough. Starting on a long side, and using waxed paper as an aid. Roll dough into a cylinder. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat oven to 375. Cut dough into 1/4 inch slices. On ungreased cookie sheet, place slices about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
 


I will be entering this recipe in Mommy's Kitchen's Pot Luck Sunday. When you get a chance, head on over there and check out all the different recipes.

I'm hoping to review that CSN product soon, and when I do, you'll get to meet someone extra special who has come into our lives :)

How did you know that candy corn are my favorite Halloween candy? These are adorable, and I bet they taste even better. I haven't found a ton of Halloween recipes yet...but now I have this one to make in the next few days, and I couldn't be more thrilled!

These have to be the cutest darn cookies I've seen in a long time and they turned out so pretty! I can see why this book caught your attention in the check out line.

I never get the right qty. of cookies for any recipe. I always end up making my cookies too big :)
