Recipe | Momma Brown's World Famous WTF cookies

On Sunday Izzy and I made cookies. These cookies were supposed to be part of a gift for the folks at Medifast.

Any hope I had of these cookies being Pinterest pretty went out the window the moment I let a three year old get involved.

I wanted to do a version of stained glass cookies using all this left over candy corn we had from Halloween. The bucket of fun-sized baggies has been in the kitchen calling my name since late October. I need them out of the house and I am not good at just throwing things away.

They should have looked like this:
But turned out like this:
And just in case you are not grasping how ugly these cookies really are, here is a close-up:

Without further adieu, here's the recipe - and the highlighted parts are most important in creating a WTF cookie.

You'll need:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Lots of candy corn

1. PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Use parchment paper to line cookie sheets.

2. COMBINE flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl. 

3. Beat sugar and butter in large bowl until well blended. 

4. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. 

5. Gradually beat in flour mixture. 

6. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.

7. Give a toddler and/or a drunk husband a bowl of candy corn. 

8. After they get sick from eating too many pieces, give them explicit instructions to put only one candy corn on each cookie. 

9. Stand back and watch as they proceed to ignore any instruction or correction and stuff each cookie with candy corn as if it were a birthday piƱata.

10. BAKE for 15 to 18 minutes. 

11. Pull parchment paper (with the cookies on it) onto a cool surface. Let cookies sit until melted candy hardens.

12. Retrieve toddler and/or drunk husband off the roof - hyperactivity issa side effect of the candy corn sugar high. 

13. Apologize to the State Trooper that showed up and assure them know that this won't happen again. 

14. DO NOT offer them a WTF cookie as it may be misinterpreted as assault on an officer. 

15. If you missed step 14, proceed to court, pay fines, do community service and pay your lawyer. Put home up for sale and never bake WTF cookies ever again.

I hope that you enjoy your very own WTF cookies this Christmas. They might look like a gift to give to someone you hate but these cookies are AWESOME. I'm not kidding. As hideous as they are, I can promise you they will not last long if you make them.
