Cute and easy cookies which look like huge pieces of candy corn. A great way to make decorated cookies for Fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving with minimal hassle. No re-rolling of dough and no icing! Would be great for the kids to help with. I am posting this recipe as it appeared in the October 1999 issue of Parents; however, any stiff sugar cookie dough suitable for rolling could be substituted for the box mix, egg, water and butter and then colored and shaped. I made these for my son's preschool class with Mean Chef's recipe #76294 dough, which required an extra teaspoon of cocoa for the brown dough. I rolled the dough into super long ropes and cut it all at once. I also made really large cookies, about 5 or 6 inches, and baked at 350 for 11 minutes. Remember when the cookies bake, the color of dough will lighten up a bit, so use plenty of food coloring.
