These are simple and tasty… the down side is that they are difficult to make cute. (If that is one of your priorities… as it is mine. ;)

Fall Dessert Recipe: Candy Corn Sugar Cookie Bars

Ingredients-

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 and 1/2 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour (bread or all-purpose)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • orange and yellow food coloring

frosting-

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup half & half
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • a pinch of salt

Directions-

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish. (Grease it really well!)
  2. Cream together butter and sugar for about 3 mins, until fluffy and light.
  3. Add egg and mix. Then add sour cream and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl.
  5. Then, slowly add this mixture into the butter and sugar mixture.
  6. Separate the dough into two equal parts and color one orange and one yellow.
  7. Press the yellow batter into the baking dish, then press the orange on top of it.
  8. Bake for 17-20 minutes, until the edges a lightly golden.
  9. When done, let cool completely.
  10. To make the frosting, cream together the butter, half & half, and powdered sugar.
  11. Mix in vanilla and salt.
  12. Then, frost the cookies, and cut into triangles. (They are actually pretty hard to cut… I definitely was not able to make all of them into adorable little triangles. I cut about half of them… got tired of it, and made the rest into squares. ;) Just keeping it real! I added candy corn on top for more cuteness.)
