Candy Corn Cookies

With the change in months comes a change in mindset. Yesterday, my mind was still in summer, but today all I can think about is Halloween and everything fall. And, since a girl (or boy) cannot live on pumpkin spice lattes alone, I decided to bake up some cookies.

For these amazing Candy Corn Cookies I used a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, left out the chocolate chips, and added chocolate candies in candy corn colors in their place. I also decided to jazz them up a little bit by melting down some white chocolate with candy corn colored flecks candy bars and drizzling it on top. The results are out of this world. So delicious their scary. So amazing they’ll haunt your dreams. You get the picture.

Ingredients:

 

1 8oz bag of Orange, Yellow, and White Chocolate Candies

1 bag small size White Chocolate Candy bars (with yellow and orange flecks)

½ cup shortening
½ cup butter

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 cup packed brown sugar

½ cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

½ tsp baking soda

 

How to:

(Preheat oven to 375 F)

  1. In a large mixing bowl (or bowl of your stand mixer) beat butter and shortening on medium for 30 seconds.
  2. Add half of the flour, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and baking soda. Beat until combined.
  3. Beat in remaining flour.
  4. Divide candies (not bars) in half. Chop up one half and leave the others whole. Add to cookie dough mixture and stir by hand.
  5. Drop dough onto an ungreased cookie pan in 2 inch balls.
  6. Bake for approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
  7. Cool on wire rack.

Real Life Candy Crush! I used my hand chopper for this task.

Chopping up half of the candy will make the cookies less dense and easier to munch on.

 

For Chocolate Drizzle Topping:

  1. Remove candy bars from their wrappers, break apart, and place in a medium sized microwaveable bowl.
  2. Microwave for 15 seconds on high, then stir. Repeat this process until all of the chocolate are melted.
  3. Dip a large spoon into the chocolate and then wave it back and forth over the cookies.
  4. Allow chocolate to harden.

Winter Tomatoes with Recipes

What a Delight ~ Winter Tomatoes!

Luke and I still have four tomato plants in our garden that just do not want to give up the ghost. This is the second winter for my Lemon Boy tomato–can you believe that?! We also have a green bell pepper that has 4 or 5 peppers growing.

Sunday we picked a full dozen tomatoes from those vines. It was so exciting. So, I thought I would look around Pinterest and see what I could find for Winter Tomatoes. Here are a few of the yummy ideas I came across. Check out the recipes; I hope you enjoy.

Gabrielle’s Winter Tomato and Corn Soup by White on Rice Couple


Doesn’t this soup look absolutely delicious? I think I may try this using my fresh from the garden winter tomatoes and supplementing with canned tomatoes if need be. Yum!

Tomato-Rosemary Confit Croustades by Cooking on the Weekends

What a great snack or appetizer! The color is so pretty. I can almost taste the crunch of the croustades, the succulent tomato and rosemary… scrumptious.

Provencal Rosemary Tomatoes by Alicia Ross, Kitchen Scoop – Toledo Blade

Can’t you just smell the wonderful aroma of roasting tomato and rosemary? This would be so good with baked chicken or beef roast.

I can’t wait to give these recipes a try. Our little bushes are full of tomatoes waiting to ripen. It’s going to be a delicious winter!
