Halloween Gala ~ Calling All Witches


Witches Brew Recipe

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake:
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth, boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

William Shakespeare

He He Heeeee

The fabulous Ms. V, of "A Fanciful Twist", is known for her infamous parties in bloggyland, and is hosting this fine gala. Just click here for a list of all participating bloggers (and there's lots), for a wickedly good and magical time.

Hi again, this recipe i posted for sugar cookies was very easy to use and roll out. key is make sure its chilled-at least 2 hours and make sure you have your flour container at hand so you can keep the rolling pin floured and the counter your working on.

Hi Lynn. Love the post. Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. Can't really decorate this year because of the moving process.
Two of my ancestors were accused of witchcraft in Salem and my father's birthday was on Halloween. A real goblin! LOL
Take care and have a great week.
