Seasonal sweet treats are everywhere this time of year and I like to try to combine unusual combinations in my baking. Candy Corn cookies are great for those days you need something sweet to fill your cravings.
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
3/4 cup butter
2 cups candy corn
1/4 cup pumpkin sprinkles
Mix flour, baking soda, salt and cornstarch together in a large bowl.
Mix brown and white sugar, vanilla, egg and butter together until well combined.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix until well blended.
Fold in candy corn and sprinkles.
Chill for at least an hour.
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Note: If left in the oven too long the candy corn will begin to melt.
