Fall Inspired

So it's actually fall now, and boy does it feel like it. There's nothing like being able to wear long sleeves and shorts, love it! Long sleeves and shorts are second in comfort only to hoodies. I love hoodies, although I would say I'm more of a summer girl. Anyways, back to the post.

I know I haven't posted in a while. Actually I've been sort of MIA on the social media circuit, as well. I've been rather busy. I know that's not an excuse, but hey, a girl's gotta work.

Despite my long absence, I did make time for cookies. And guess what, they are fall inspired!

Candy Corn Cookies for Fall via @cupcake_n_bake #fall #halloween
To tell you the truth, I'm not really a candy corn fan. I mean, it's edible, but I'm not going to go out and buy some. Nevertheless, I think candy corn is the essential fall candy. I also think it is cute. I've been browsing the blogosphere, and I've seen candy corn everywhere. I've seen candy corn banners, candy corn rice krispies, even candy corn goodie bags. So why not sugar cookies?
Here's what you'll need:
Your favorite cookie recipe
Orange and Lemon Yellow food coloring
egg shaped cookie cutter
small knife
Ready to learn?

Roll out your dough, and, of course, use your egg cookie cutter to cut the shape of your cookies. I squeezed mine a little, so it wouldn't be too egg shaped. 
Then, you'll want to section off pieces. The tip should be a little smaller that the other portions, and the bottom should be the largest.
After you section it, set the separates aside, keeping like sections together.

Color each of your sections with your food coloring. The middle section should be orange and the bottom is yellow. You can also switch it up a bit, though. I've seen "autumn mix" candy corn. It's got brown, orange, and other fun autumn colors. 
When your coloring, use rubber gloves if you have to. Also, you're going to have to re-section the pieces. To do this, I just used a knife and cut sizes that I thought I would need. I used my tip piece to give myself an idea.

Next, you'll attach all your pieces. I basically just sat them really close to each other and hoped they would attach in the oven. It might be a good idea to use your rolling pin to combine each section.

Bake the cookies, and let them cool. Then you can dig in! 
Aren't these fun? I mean not only are they very festive, they are also easy to eat. Sometimes, I don't want a whole cookie. That's why these are perfect. They are sections, so you can just break off a section and eat it. Because of the sections, I wanted to call these puzzle piece cookies. They just seem like puzzle pieces to me. And, now I'm rambling. Sorry about that!

Anyways, I hope you like the cookies. Happy Fall, and I hope to hear from you!

  2. Awesome idea! My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
