Candy Corn Cookies

I changed up my last cookie recipe to add candy corns! Perfect fall kid cookie!  I even recruited my kids to help me make them by breaking the candy corns in half. These cookies sometimes have an irregular shape if the candy corns stick out and melt on the sides, but they taste sooo good!!

Candy Corn Cookies

2 tsps cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
