Trick or Sweet: Candy Corn Kaleidoscope Cookies for Serious Eats

It's October, and you know what that means: it's officially candy corn season.

But if you appreciate the iconic look more than the mellowcreme taste of the stuff, here's a solution: a reconfiguration of the Kaleidoscope Cooky (yes, cooky) from the Betty Crocker's Cooky Book, made to resemble the tricolor confection. Lightly crumbly, very buttery, and extremely crowd-pleasing, these cookies are a totally sweet tricked-out treat.

Note: This recipe is designed to feed a crowd; I have in the past halved it with fine results. Also, if shaping the dough into the candy corn shape seems too fussy, they're just as festive as Halloween-hued rounds.

I have a company potluck today and decided to whip these up the other night in preparation. I have both the new and the old version of the Cooky Book and there is a recipe in each, though they vary slightly. I tried the newer version (just for kicks and giggles) and the dough turned into a crumbly mess! Frustrated, but not totally put out, I attempted the original version and they turned out perfectly! So I'd definitely say to go with the tried and true classic recipe for this one. Don't fix it if it ain't broke, right?
