'Who' wouldn't love these adorable cookies? Using a roll-out refrigerated cookie dough, chocolate-chip eyes and a candy-corn nose, they're a cinch to assemble. If you don't have chocolate chips on hand, use M&M's instead for a kid-friendly fall treat. -Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (18 ounces) refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 18 yellow candy coating disks
  • 18 semisweet chocolate chips
  • 9 pieces candy corn

Directions

  3. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately position a piece of candy corn on each cookie for beak. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
