You may remember that I posted about making Candy Corn Cookies the other day.
Yes, those Candy Corn Cookies.
I made them for the LA Galaxy Game because, even though it was definitely implied that I was only expected to buy cookies, I like to bake my way into peoples’ hearts.
I also made them because I bought candy corn on a whim the other day and needed to use it up so I wouldn’t eat it by the handful (candy corn is so addicting).
I also made them because I’ve been craving oatmeal chocolate chip cookies like whoa.
Finally, I also made them because I decided it was high time for a Halloween-themed cookie recipe. Holiday recipes are the best, don’t you think?
Obviously, I combined all of these elements for this recipe.
And, if I do say so myself, this recipe is a keeper.
Candy Corn Cookies
makes 2 dozen cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups oats
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup butter (at room temperature)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup candy corn
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together flour, oats, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to combine brown sugar, white sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla.
Use a spoon to stir dry mixture into wet mixture.
Stir in candy corn and chocolate chips.
Spoon rounded tablespoons of dough onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
These cookies were a pretty big hit with everyone, so I think I can call them a winner. They were chewy and packed with flavor — everything I think a cookie should be.
Happy Fall! Serve these for Halloween and make friends.
