Old tried and true recipe for these delightful cookies.Made these for one of the kids' party for Thanksgiving at school. Super easy to make and fun too! The kids enjoy sticking the candy corn on the frosting and the chocolate frosting looks like brown feathers behind the yellow and orange candy corn. Though it is hard to make them look exactly alike they come out with different personalities just like kids! enjoy ChefDLH!
