A Witchy Good Give Away.

This is my first time being part of Samhain sirens. I don't know if this is there first year or not. I'm having a grand old time if one can have fun in a blogger world. Confession time...I hope they do something fun with Yule.

I first want to tell you about the give away being offered by Elegantly Enchanting I think in general I would be interested in the Altar and spellwork tools.
But there is a lot more fun over at samhain sirens 

This time around in the kitchen fun...is some cookies

 
Cursed Cookies

* 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
* 2 cups white sugar
* 4 eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 5 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 teaspoon salt

Frosting

* confectioners sugar (about 2 cups)
* milk (by the Tbsp)
* splash of vanilla or almond extract
* food coloring for decorating

Method

1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. If your butter is too hard, leave it in the sun to soften a bit. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

2. Stir in the flour in 1-cup increments, mixing well. Add baking powder and salt, then blend until the dough starts to form into a ball.

3. Leave the dough to chill for at least an hour. Overnight is best.

4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out the dough onto a floured surface about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into VOODOO shapes, then place cookies 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

5. Bake for 6 minutes in the preheated oven. You’ll want the cookies to come out with just a tiiiiiny bit of color on the bottom. Adjust the time and temperature as necessary — Matt and I had to eat the first batch as the bottoms were too browned. (No loss there!) Cool completely before frosting.

6. When the cookies are cool, make the frosting! Add 2 cups confectioners sugar to a bowl and add vanilla extract. Add milk in increments until the desired consistency is reached — you’ll want it so you can pipe the frosting and have it be a bit thick.

7. Once the consistency is reached, divide into different containers and add food coloring until the desired colors are reached. Frost the cookies with a toothpick or using a piping bag, then place them on a cooling rack to dry. Allow icing to dry overnight.

ETA: This recipe yields around 60-80 cookies. Just forewarning you!!

These cookies are from coexistcafe and Fred and Friends
