Candy Corn Swirl Cookies


Servings: 10 Total Time: 1 hr 20 mins

16 oz. softened butter

2 cups granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

5 cups flour

6 drops yellow food gel

6 drops orange food gel

  1. First, cream the butter in a bowl with a hand mixer. Add in sugar and mix again until well combined. Then add in eggs, baking powder, and vanilla extract. Mix everything until well combined.

  2. Now add the flour in small batches and mix in between. If the dough is sticky add more flour and mix again until the dough is no longer sticky.

  3. Take the dough and separate it into 3 sections. Color one yellow, and one orange, and leave the other plain. Then place the dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.

  4. Roll each piece of dough out to 1/2" thick. Stack the 3 sections of dough on top of each other. Place the orange dough on the bottom, the yellow dough in the middle, and the plain dough on top. Then trim the edges so the dough is an even rectangle shape.

  5. Roll the dough to form a log. Then wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 40 minutes.

  6. Remove the plastic wrap from the dough. Cut it into 1/2" thick slices. Then place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  7. Bake at 350 F for about 10 minutes.
