Halloween is very nearly upon us, and today marks the first day of the Sisters that Spook hi jinx!
My sister Pammy, from French Knots, and I have joined together to bring you 7 days of fun filled Halloween tricks and treats! For the next 7 days - everyday I will present you with a Treat, and everyday Pamela will present you with a Trick. I'm just sure you will love what we have in store... so, grab a button (---->over there), and join in the fun! On day 7 we will bring you a fabulous finalè, including a giveaway with the chance to win the fabulous witch artwork featured here by Gabriel Olson, and an opportunity to post your own bewitching creations!
Let's get started!
These are the simplest, and most fun dare I say, Halloween treats for any age!
Both of these ideas come from the Betty Crocker Cookie Cookbook, 1998 ed.
Create a simple buttercream frosting, dye it your favorite fall color, set aside
Unwrap equal number of Hershey's Kisses, and Keebler Fudge-Striped Shortbread CookiesPipe a thick line of frosting on the underside edge of each Hershey Kiss and place atop center of shortbread cookie
Pipe a bow along side of Hershey Kiss
*It is so fun to have helpers in the kitchen! (or otherwise)
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together with hand held beaters until smooth and incorporated
1 ½ cups flour
Pinch of salt
Stir until flour incorporated
Shape balls of dough, and press into 1" pretzel rods
Flatten and lengthen dough, then press with a fork to create broom bristles
Bake at F350°, on greased cookie sheet 5-7 minutes, cool on wire rack
*Tip: Careful when removing from pan, you don't want to seperate broom from handle!
Drizzle chocolate along crease where pretzel and cookie meet and decorate with frosting or sprinkles!
Tell me your favorite, simple Halloween treat! Then hop on and ride your broomstick over to Pammy's blog for a magical wizard's trick.
