Cauldron Cookies
from The Wicca Spellbook: A Witch’s Collection of Wiccan Spells, Potions and Recipes by Gerina Dunwich

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup softened butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans

Cream the butter in a large cast-iron cauldron (or mixing bowl). Gradually add the brown sugar, beating well. Add the eggs, lemon juice, and rind, and then beat by hand or with an electric mixer until the mixture is well blended. The next step is to stir in the flour and pecans. Cover the cauldron with a lid, aluminum foil, or plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. When ready, shape the dough into one-inch balls and place them about three inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake in a 375-degree preheated oven for approximately eight minutes. Remove from the oven and place on wire racks until completely cool.

This recipe yields about 36 cookies which can be served at any of the eight Sabbats, as well as at Esbats and all other Witchy get-togethers.

Sheila’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
By Sheila K. Watkins

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups sugar (or vanilla sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 4-? cups flour (can add more if mixture isn’t thick enough)
  • 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 12 oz package chocolate chips
  • 1 cup broken up walnuts
  • 1 cup coconut

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars together focusing on how wonderful these cookies are going to taste and make sure you stir clockwise as you do. Know that loving energies are flowing from you and the ingredients your using. Add the eggs and beat well. If you accidentally drop one on the floor well you know good news is coming your way. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. (Or you can do like I do add the baking soda, salt and cocoa powder in. Mix those ingredients in well then add the flour.) Slowly start adding to the creamed mixture,  stirring clockwise as you do. Feel the energy, the goodness flow from you and into your food. Add the chocolate chips, the coconut and the walnuts into the dough still stirring in a clockwise motion. After the dough is thoroughly mixed. Drop by teaspoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.

Note: do not add any ingredient from which you might suffer an allergic reaction.

Note #2: this makes a LOT of cookies but they freeze well. The dough also freezes well.
