Candy Corn Cookies

Elizabeth Lancaster


I LOVE Candy Corn!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!! I wish they made scented candles and air fresheners out of that smell! So I was able to attend a 8 week farmers market event in my small town in Nebraska, and I looked on the internet for candy corn recipes. I found 3 I liked, some were good,others not so much, so I tweaked all three and liked this. These sold extremely well and were extremely cute for Fall. I hope your family enjoys these as much as mine and my former customers.

How to Make Candy Corn Cookies


  1. Cream together butter,sugars,eggs and vanilla on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Scrape the sides of the bowl, and add the flour,corn starch ,soda and salt.mix on low speed for about 1 minute don’t over mix.
  3. Add the candy corn, white chocolate chips and mix until just incorporated. Place in fridge for at least 3 hours.
  4. Pre-Heat to 350*

    Do not bake with warm dough because cookies will spread and bake thinner and flatter. Important note – Strategically place candy corn so that it’s not baking directly on cookie sheet because it will melt, burn, or turn runny if it is.
  5. Bake for 9 to 11 mins. On a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper and placed 2 inches apart.
    Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooking. Enjoy!! I love making these in the fall, they were a huge seller at my farmers market booths!
