                        Cookie Glaze -- see recipe below
                        Yellow and orange food colors
                        --Butter Cookie Dough--
     3/4           cup  butter -- softened
     1/4           cup  granulated sugar
     1/4           cup  packed light brown sugar
  1                     egg yolk
  1 3/4           cups  all-purpose flour
     3/4      teaspoon  baking powder
     1/8      teaspoon  salt

Mix butter, sugars and egg yolk in medium bowl.  Add flour, baking powder
and salt; mix well.  Cover; chill about 4 hours or until firm.

Preheat oven to 350F.  Roll dough on floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness.
Cut out 3-inch candy corn shapes.  Place cutouts on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are browned.  Remove to wire racks to
cool.  Prepare Cookie Glaze (recipe below).

Mix 4 cups powdered sugar and 1/4 cup milk in bowl.  Add 1 to 2 tablespoons
more milk as needed to make pourable glaze.

Place racks over waxed-paper-lined baking sheets.  Divide Cookie Glaze among
three small bowls.  Color 1/3 glaze with yellow food color and 1/3 with
orange food color.  Leave remaining glaze white.  Spoon glazes over cookies
to resemble "candy corn."  Let stand until set.

Makes 24 cookies

Omit yellow and orange food colors.  Prepare recipe as directed except use
bat cookie cutter to cut out cookies.  Bake as directed.  Color glze with
black paste food color; spoon over cookies.  Decorated as desired.
