Candy Corn Cookies

What a fun twist on classic Sugar Cookies! My husband loves sugar cookies only he prefers his unfrosted, and this is a way to do that, and still have them look festive! Gotta love it!

1pouch of sugar cookie mix (or you can use Homemade)
1/3cup butter or margarine, melted

Orange paste food color
2oz semisweet chocolate, melted, cooled

Line 8x4-inch loaf pan with waxed paper, extending paper over sides of pan. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms.

Divide remaining dough in half. Gently press one half of remaining dough into pan on top of orange dough. On work surface, knead chocolate into remaining dough until color is uniform. Press over plain dough in pan, pressing gently to edge of pan. Refrigerate 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until firm.

Heat oven to 375°F. Remove dough from pan. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Cut each slice into 5 wedges. On ungreased cookie sheet, place wedges 1 inch apart.

Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are set and edges are very light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container.
