Homemade Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

I’ll admit candy corn isn’t my favorite but I really love the colors of it. Strange right?

Well, not really when you figure that candy corn colors are the colors of Fall and since I love Fall, it all begins to make sense.

So, I will bake stuff for my family and incorporate candy corn into my Fall decor, you just won’t catch me snacking on the candy. That is why I love these cookies so much.

They do not contain any real candy corn at all they are just made to resemble it and I love how they turned out! Sure hope you will give these a try as well.

Supplies Needed to Make Candy Corn Sugar Cookies:

  • Butter (room temperature)
  • Sugar
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Eggs
  • Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Orange Sugar Sprinkles 
  • Orange Color Icing
  • Yellow Color Icing
  • Bread Loaf Pan

How to Make Candy Corn Sugar Cookies:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Using electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together for a few minutes at medium speed using paddle.

Add Greek yogurt and vanilla extract to butter and sugar mixture in mixer. Cream together for 1 to 2 minutes at medium speed.

Add eggs to mixture and beat together for about 3 minutes.

Combine dry ingredients in medium mixing bowl: flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Slowly add dry mixture to mixer on low speed until all ingredients are evenly combined.

Scoop mixture into medium mixing bowl. Seal and place in refrigerator overnight.

Remove from refrigerator. Scoop out about a cup and a half at a time and place onto parchment paper. Knead with hands. Sprinkle flour onto rolling pin and dough as needed to avoid sticking.

Add yellow color icing to dough and knead with hands or fold with a spoon until color is evenly distributed. Keep adding yellow color icing until desired color is achieved. Set aside.

Repeat steps 8 and 9, but use orange color icing.

Repeat step 8, but do not add icing color to your third and final layer.

Line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper.

Begin to press the yellow dough (1st layer) into the bottom of the pan. Try to ensure the dough is level, with no bumps.

Add the orange dough (2nd layer) on top of the yellow. Pat it down with your hands.

Add the uncolored dough (3rd layer) on top of the orange. Pat it down with your hands.

Refrigerate for approximately 2 hours to set.

Remove from refrigerator and let set for 15 minutes.

Holding on to the parchment paper used to line bread loaf pan, remove layered dough and set on clean surface.
