dsc02664

October 31 is Halloween, and Soul Cakes are the traditional treat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • powdered sugar, to sprinkle on top

Directions:

  1. Using a pastry blender cut 1 c. of butter into 3 3/4 cups of flour. I bought my first pastry blender just for this occasion.
  2. Blend in the sugar, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and allspice.
  3. In a separate bowl beat eggs, vinegar and milk together.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix.
  5. Kneed thoroughly to form a stiff dough. You really have to work this dough, I thought there was no way it was moist enough, but once I mashed it all up it was just right.
  6.  Roll out to a 1/4 inch thickness and cut out 3 inch circles with a cookie cutter or glass.
  7. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  8.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm. ENJOY!!!
