Witches Theme - Jacinta's (1 of 3)This was for the Witches’ Food dinner. I got the ideas for a first aid kit from this Buzzfeed page and made the bandaids and the q-tips.

Ingredients – Bloody Bandaids

  • 4oz (125g) butter
  • 4oz (125g) plain flour
  • 2 oz (60g) caster sugar
  • 2 oz (60g) cornflour
  • Block of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • Strawberry jam

Method

  1. Using a hand mixer (or food processor), cream butter and sugar. Add sifted flour and cornflour by degrees, working quickly. Once it forms a paste use your hands to form into a ball. Again, don’t overwork the mixture. No kneading.
  2. You can then shape the shortbread however you like. I gently rolled the ball out flat and then cut ‘bandaid sized’ strips and pricked holes in them using a fork. You can gather up the scraps of pastry and roll out again.
  3. Place on baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes in a moderate-hot oven (180-200C). You don’t want overcooked shortbread so check them at the 15 minute mark as they don’t need to brown to be cooked.
  4. Once the shortbread is cooked and cooled (you can make a day or two before you need them and store in an airtight container) cut a block of Philadelphia cream cheese into small rectangles and place on the middle of each piece of shortbread and then put on a small dollop of strawberry jam.

Ingredients – Q-Tips

  • Lollipop sticks
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Peanut butter

Method

Not really a recipe but a lot of fun. Finding the lollipop sticks was the hardest part – I ended up having to go to a specialty baking supplies shop. Once you have them it’s easy enough to put a marshmallow on each end and then dab on some peanut butter!
