Ingredients
  • Kim's Homemade Sugar Cookie Dough "Crust"*
  • 1 ½ cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter, unsalted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • Optional garnish: fall/Halloween M&M’s or any other favorite candy crushed in small pieces
  • Kim's Buttercream Icing
  • 1 cup butter (or ½ cup butter + ½ cup Crisco shortening)
  • 1 vanilla or clear vanilla**
  • 4 cups (1 pound) sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • Gel colors: orange and golden yellow
Instructions
  1. Kim's Homemade Sugar Cookie Dough "Crust"
  2. In a large bowl, mix sugar and butter together with electric mixer. Add egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix thoroughly until blended. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Add slowly to butter mixture, mixing well on medium until thoroughly blended. Refrigerate dough 2 to 3 hours.
  3. Heat oven to 375⁰F. Lightly grease or spray a large (12-14-inch) pizza pan. Pat or roll dough on pan, making sure it’s the same thickness all around. Bake until done in middle and slightly golden, about 9 to 14 minutes, depending on your oven. Cool on wire rack.
  4. Once completely cooled, ice with my buttercream icing to resemble candy corn. Sprinkle with M&Ms or candy if desired. Refrigerate iced cookie until serving time. Slice into wedges.
  5. Kim's Buttercream Icing
  6. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter. Add vanilla and mix until combined. Gradually add powdered sugar, about 1 cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Add the whole milk in between sugar additions. Mix 3 minutes, or until slightly fluffier. Take out a tiny amount of white icing and set aside. Tint slightly over half of the remaining icing a bright golden yellow. Tint the remaining amount orange. Pipe or spread each color in a circular pattern on the cookie (yellow on crust edge, wider band of orange in center and small circle of white in middle.)
  7. Kim's Tips: *Use two of those refrigerated sugar cookie dough logs if you want. Use clear vanilla if you’re going to need part of the icing to stay bright white.
