Frances was reading a chapter book (Diary of a Fairy Godmother) about a witch who wished she was a fairy godmother instead. At at the end they had a recipe for Hunky Dory's Booger Cookies. I thought they were a bit chalky, but Frances LOVED them.
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 small package instant pistachio pudding mix
2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
walnuts or pecans (optional - we left them out)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-3 Tbs milk
3-5 drops green food coloring
1 bag Hershey's kisses
Preheat oven to 350°
Cream powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract, pudding mix, and egg in your caldron until well blended.
Add flour and stir by hand.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Chant your favorite spell while you stir; it makes the time pass more quickly
Shape into 1 inch balls, roll in eye of newt (or nuts if you like).
Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet (I forgot to grease and didn't need to)
With thumb or wand, make imprint in center of each cookie.
Bake for 10-14 minutes until edges are light brown.
Let cool completely.
In a smaller caldron, combine all filling ingredients until smooth. Place a scant teaspoon of filling onto the center of each cookie. Top with witches's hat.
