When I made these cookies, all my husband would say is that I'm obsessed. Who can blame me? These turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!
It is really easy to make these and they are such a fun variation of traditional sugar cookies. They're so cute you don't have to ice them...or you could in a continued candy corn theme.
Mix up a batch of sugar cookies. Separate your dough into 3 bowls. One bowl with about half of your dough. With the other half, take about a third and put that into another bowl, and the rest into your last bowl.
Using food coloring, make your largest bowl of dough yellow, the second largest orange, and leave the smallest bowl white. Mix, mush and smash until you have a uniform color.
Divide each of your colors in half. Take one half of your yellow dough and roll it into a snake. Flatten the top and bottom of it and lay it on wax paper.
Roll half of your orange into a snake the same length as your yellow, flatten the top and bottom a bit and lay that on top of your yellow snake.
Do the same with half of your white dough, but shape into a triangle and lay on top of your orange.
Wrap up your tricolored snake with the wax paper and run your hands along the sides to flatten/smooth it out until your snake is more of a long triangle.
Do the same with your other half and allow to chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
Unwrap your logs and either using floss by wrapping it around the log and pulling it across each other, or a knife, cut your dough into 1/4 inch wide slices.
Lay on your cookie sheet and cook for 8-12 minutes.
Wish like crazy you had a window in your oven...pull out and allow to cool on the sheet for 1 minute.
Remove to a cooling rack and devour as soon as they are cool enough to handle. Enjoy!
I absolutely love C's new cheese smile :)
