How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 350°F.
Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add flour, mixing well after each addition. Shape into 12-inch log. (Dough will be sticky.)
Refrigerate 30 min.
Reshape dough into triangular-shaped log; cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheet.
Bake 12 to 15 min. or until edges of cookies are lightly browned. Cool 1 min. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks; cool completely.
Empty orange and lemon jelly powders into separate small bowls. Add 2 Tbsp. water to jelly powder in each bowl; mix well. Use clean paint brush to paint cookies with coloured jellies to resemble pieces of candy corn. Let stand 30 min. or until dry.
