HELPFUL TIPS FOR SHAPING: 1st, know they make 39 using a med. cookie scoop (2t), so you'd need 78 candy corns! 2nd, very important to use room temp butter because this is a dry recipe and you need it to mix smoothly. 3rd. To be honest, I used my hand with disposable plastic glove and felt this was best w/this dough. Then I added eggs. As long as the dry ingred. are mixed well, you really don't have to worry about it being that playdough consistency it should be. When you roll into balls, it will turn into smooth perfect balls. 4th, I only fit 6 at a time on the cookie sheet. 5th, Dip tops with sugar then use a glass cup to flatten dough. Then use hand to continue to flatten it to about 1/4-1/2" consistency. 5th, for whiskers, use a toothpick (ran through then rolled toothpick a tad before pulling out). 6th, I used a 1/3C measuring cup to flatten these. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, do not give the ears any "width" when you pinch to make them. I made mine very thin (basically pinched as thin as I can make it) because they spread to the perfect width). It's best to bake just a couple to see how they turn out, and then you're set with the rest! Oh, and 8 min was perfect. Anything more would have cracked them making hard to put candy in and I recommend putting them in AFTER you bake. EDIT: DON'T be scare by reviewers who said cookie was a 3. It IS a 3, but 3 tastes good not bad!! Just wouldn't win a cookie contest BUT would be something you'd serve ANYONE and IS good (fudgey)!! Oh & I us
