I didn't dress up this Halloween (I know, boring), but I did decide to get into the spirit by baking some Harry Potter cookies. I had found these Halloween linzer cookie cutters a few months ago, and the owl and witch hat shapes reminded me of Harry. I thought "butterbeer" (aka buttery butterscotch) and pumpkin would work well together -- they ended up being really good AND really cute.
Doesn't that owl look just like Hedwig? Get the recipe and see more photos at Eat. Swim. Shop.
