Making a Halloween gift basket?

Question by Ely: Making a Halloween gift basket?
Does anyone have any ideas or recipes for Halloween baked goods? I’m looking for decorating tips on making Halloween themed cookies, brownies, anything else, etc. Plus, would it be a good idea to put these items in a woven basket (like those Easter baskets type of thing), tie it with black and orange ribbons, and wrap it in clear wrap? Any help appreciated.

My sister has a party every year and I always make something. One of the things this year I am making is a strawberry ghost. You dip the berry in white chocolate and use brown chocolate for the eyes. Cute.

What is the difference between creamy butter and whipped butter when making shortbread cookies?

Question by Christy B: What is the difference between creamy butter and whipped butter when making shortbread cookies?
I’m making shortbread cookies and I usually use ‘Ultra creamy butter’. However I can’t find this in the store so I bought regular butter, but was wondering if I ‘whip it’ with the mixer, would that make it creamier? Will my cookies come out better?

Best answer:

Answer by Holly
I am unfamiliar with ‘ultra creamy butter’—is it whipped butter in a tub?

Whipped butter is full of air, and not suitable for baking simply because you can’t measure it accurately.

Ultra creamy butter shouldn’t be any different from regular butter. All butter is creamy if it is at the right temperature.

For cooking, I would always use regular sticks of butter—that is what the recipe intends for you to use.

Answer by The Plumber
No. I think the number one ingredient was lard. Now they would be too healthy and no where as good as grandma used to make. It just wouldn’t be as fun.

Making Polvorones aka Mexican Wedding Cookies

Polvorones are small cookies made from flour, lard and rich red wine. There’s some sugar and cinnamon in the mix, too, but the main ingredients are the lard, the flour and the wine. Isabel Mournian describes how to form the “polvorone,” rolling the dough into a ball between the palms of the hands, then poking a dimple in the center “because that’s the way they do it.” The dimple in the center has another purpose: making the cookie into a shape that will cook evenly throughout. The cinnamon and the wine give the polvorone its distinctive flavor. Then, to add to the allure of these little gems, they are taken out of the oven and immediately rolled in a mixture of granulated or powdered sugar and fresh ground cinnamon. Ahhh, what a taste! The polvorone falls apart in your mouth and the taste lingers in the air. Great for weddings, and for Christmas.
