Candy Corn Cookies

Well Halloween is right around the corner so I've been seeing candy corn in, on and around everything lately.  So I threw some into a batch of cookies just for fun.  My daughter loves candy corn but I'm pretty sure all kids do.  She loved the idea of the candy corn in her cookie.  The candy corn kinda melts into the cookie and forms a crunchy sugary thing on the outer edges that was really tasty. 

Candy Corn Cookies

1 stick room temp. butter
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
2 eggs, room temp.
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
2 c. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped candy corns

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine butter, shortening and sugars in a mixer and beat until creamy and well combined.  In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.  In butter mixture add in eggs, one at a time making sure each is combined before adding the next.  Add in vanilla.  Add in flour mixture and mix until combined.  Then add in your chocolate and candy corns.  On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper place tablespoon size balls of cookie dough.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden around the edges.
