2 cups sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt


Candy corn

Red cinnamon candies

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine sugar and butter in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla; beat until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all remaining ingredients except candies in another bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten to 1/2 inch. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  5. STEP 5

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch round cookie cutters. Place onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  6. STEP 6

    Using fingers, pinch up ears at top of each circle. Place 2 pieces candy corn onto cookies for eyes and 1 red cinnamon candy for nose. Press tines of fork on each side of cookie below eyes to form whiskers.

  7. STEP 7

    Bake 7-9 minutes or until cookies are set. Let cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.

Tip #1

- Look for different colors and varieties of candy corn to create different colored eyes.

Tip #2
