Halloween Cookbook

Make a big pot of soup; my favorites are French onion, broccoli cheese, Hot and Sour, Tomato Bisque, Creamy Cream of Mushroom.

Make foods of fall; beef stew with thick gravy, apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and cinnamon sauce, pumpkin pie with whipped cream…. macaroni and cheese (it’s orange!)

Prepare an Halloween dinner of spaghetti or macaroni and cheese, deviled egg eyeballs, raw carrot ‘fingers’, and spider bread

Crescent Mummy Dogs

Crescent Mummy Dogs

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (8 count)
2 1/2 slices (2.5 oz) American cheese slices, quartered
10 large hot dogs
Cooking spray
Mustard or ketchup, if desired

1 . Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough; separate at perforations creating 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough. Slice cheese slices into quarters (1/2 slice cheese, cut in half).
2 . Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to look like “bandages,” stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate “bandages” so hot dog shows through for “face.” On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down); spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
3 . Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw features on “face”

Halloween Spider Bread Basically, I make bread dough in my bread machine and then shape it in the shape of a spider, with foil balls under each leg and bake.. Great right out of the oven with butter… we all use to fight over the legs…

These are like the ones I made

See another idea using frozen bread dough (which is what I’d use now):

Bake sugar cookies and cut out with Autumn-shaped and/or Halloween cookie cutters. Frost with chocolate, maple, and orange flavored frostings and vanilla frosting colored purple.

Decorate cookies or cupcakes icing spiderwebs, candy corn graveyards, and marshmallow ghosts.

Bake a Halloween cake. There are so many fantastic designs to choose from.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie

IMPOSSIBLE PUMPKIN PIE
Ingredients
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Bisquick (baking mix)
2 T. butter
one 13 oz. can evaporated milk
2 eggs
one 16 oz. can pumpkin
2 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. vanilla
Instructions
Heat oven to 350. Grease pie plate, 9×1 1/4 or 10×1 1/2 inches. Beat all ingredients until smooth one minute in blender on high or two minutes with hand beater. Pour into plate. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean, 50-55 minutes.

Make Soul Cakes

At one time soul cakes were given to peasants as they went door to door begging. This was the beginning of trick or treating.
The idea was that the “treat” was given to the beggar so that they would not play a trick or prank or worse, curse the homeowner. After receiving the cake, the beggars would say a prayer of thanks for the homeowner.

Two sticks butter
3 and 3/4 cups sifted flour
1 cup fine sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. each, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice
2 eggs
2 tsp. cider vinegar
4-6 Tbsp milk
Powdered sugar to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the butter into the flour with a pastry blender or a large fork. Blend in the sugar, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and allspice; beat eggs, vinegar, and milk together. Mix with the flour mixture until a stiff dough is formed. Knead thoroughly and roll out, 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 3 inch rounds and place on greased baking sheets. Prick several times with a fork and bake for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar while still warm.
