Cookie Friday: Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp almond extract
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
yellow and red food coloring

Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and almond extract. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Remove 1/3 of dough. Tint remaining dough yellow- try to refrain from saying "Don't eat the yellow dough!" Remove half of the yellow dough, and add a few drops of red food coloring. blend until dough is desired color of orange.

*hint- make the colors very bright. They fade a little while baking.*

For the shaping tips, I refer you to cakespy's directions at Serious Eats.

Dust both sides in sugar and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cool on a rack and store in tupperware to prevent drying out.
