Candy Corn Cookies

Recipe and Instructions:
1 cup sugar
1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix 1 cup sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and almond extract, and egg.  Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Color one part of dough with orange coloring; color another part of dough with yellow coloring.  Form all three dough parts into rounds and cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.

After refrigerating, roll each of the colored doughs into a long strip.  roll into a 5 inch by 24 inch strip;  you could vary this.  Trim the edges.

Then, combine the three strips.    Trim the edges.

Roll the dough up evenly and carefully.

Once it is rolled up, you can begin to cut it into slices of about one-half inch.   a bread knife worked really well for this job.  Before baking, sprinkle sugar on each cookie.

Bake at 350 for about 8 to 10 minutes.  Remove from cookie pans and place on cooling rack.
