Candy Corn Cookies

It's a sweet--and easy--Halloween treat: Candy Corn Cookies!

Shaped like the familiar Autumn candy, this recipe from BettyCrocker.com uses packaged sugar cookie mix and innovative shaping to cut time in the kitchen.

Dividing the dough into thirds, you'll tint two portions in holiday colors and combine them with an uncolored vanilla layer.

Surprise! There's no rolling required! Instead, the dough layers are stacked in a loaf pan, chilled, then cut to shape. They're as easy to make as slice-and-bake.
