Halloween Scares: Candy Corn Roll Up Cookies

Hey Guys! So this is my first recipe for the Halloween Scares series! I got this recipe from:'%20Halloween%20Treats&term=&itemId=60ec3ea8-41fc-4d94-9e24-950bef45b6c5 and I think that it is such a fun idea! I will be doing lots of recipes because I know that people can be very picky! Enjoy! This website came up with this ingredient. I am just sharing it with you!
Candy Corn Roll-Up Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2
cups powdered sugar
Grated peel of 1 medium orange (1 to 2 tablespoons)
2 1/2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon cream of tartar
teaspoon orange gel food color
teaspoon yellow gel food color
Coarse sugar, if desired
Step 1: 
In large bowl, beat butter, powdered sugar, egg and orange peel with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking soda and cream of tartar.

Step 2: 
Divide dough into thirds. Tint one portion orange and one portion yellow; leave remaining portion plain. Flatten each portion into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 20 minutes.

Step 3: 
On separate sheets of lightly floured waxed paper, roll each portion of dough into 12x9-inch rectangle. Place orange rectangle on top of yellow rectangle, using waxed paper ends to help flip dough over. Top with plain dough rectangle. Starting on a long side, and using waxed paper as an aid, roll dough into a cylinder. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate 1 hour.

Step 4: 

  • Heat oven to 375°F. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices. On ungreased cookie sheet, place slices about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Step 5: 
  • Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
Have a Happy Halloween!
