I have a thought of something you could do to incorporate both a rolled out/layered cookie with a Halloween theme and using candy corn, but not sure if this would be what you want. Still, it is worth mentioning.
Every year, we make something called Hoot Owl Cookies. You may have heard of them since my Mom made them with me ever since I was little around Halloween. They are basically a cookie that looks like an owl. To make them, you make a dark brown cookie dough into a log shape and you cover it with a light brown cookie dough around it. Then, you cut the log into 1/4 inch circular pieces. Take 2 pieces and mesh them together on one side to make the face of the owl, and prick up ears on the top sides. I have always added butterscotch chips for the eyes and a cashew for the nose, and then you have your owl, but maybe you could incorporate the candy corn here and push them in right when it comes out of the oven. Either use it for the eyes or the nose.
It is kind of hard to explain unless you have a picture of it. Go to my blog at this link and see if this makes sense.
I figured that maybe you could incorporate your own oatmeal version of this recipe for a Halloween, Candy corn treat!


Here's another thought Greg...I like to eat candy corn with peanuts. It is the perfect sweet and salty combination. Maybe you could add some candy corn to some almost cooked PB cookies. That way they keep their shape and don't melt or let them melt if the cookie consistency is good. Or stuff a PB cookie with candy corn and let them melt inside. Do you think this would work? If it doesn't have enough of the salt flavor, you could top them with some kosher salt like you do with the salted caramel cookies.


Last night, I was laying in my bed, a solution for your problem came to my mind....
You take three plates with different diameters. Roll out the dough and use the plates to cut out circles: The biggest plate for the first color. Then use the secondsmallest plate to cut out the middle, so you get a ring. Use the same plate to cut the second color and place it in the middle of the dough-ring. Now you can cut out the middle and place a circle of the last color dough into it.

.... and now you just have to cut it from the middle like a cake. There you go!

(Uhm, that was very complicated. It's not easy to explain it in another language than mine :D )

Hey, Laurel. The owl cookies on your site look so neat. What a great idea! And your comment about peanuts and candy corn has me thinking about a whole new peanut butter cookie. :-)
