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

  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!
