Pumpkin Black and White Cookies

Serious Eats Alexandra Penfold 1 comment

The pumpkin puree lends a lightness to the texture and gives it enough moisture to stave off the dryness that tends to plague traditional black-and-whites. More

The ice cream base is a simple one, peanut butter with a hefty enough dose of vanilla to simulate nougat. More

Halloween Treats: It's The Great Pumpkin Cheesecake

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

Linus sits in the cold pumpkin patch, silly Sally too googly-eyed and blinded by pulsating pink and red cartoon hearts to realize there is no giant gourd coming that night. Oh Great Pumpkin, humble squash, martyr of October. Stabbed, defaced, lit on fire, hidden in metal cans. I too, am looking forward to your arrival, but in a more tangible form. More

Halloween Treats: Monster Spicy Brittle Candy Bar

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa Post a comment

I'm a total wet mop during Halloween. Every year of my adult life, the ghoulish holiday comes and goes without the slightest bat of an eyelash. I made plans to attend a party one year and even sketched out a costume, but nothing ever came of it. I flaked and stayed home. As a kid, it was very different. More

Zombie Graveyard Cake

Serious Eats cakespy Post a comment

Starting with a generous amount of grass green-tinted frosting, the cake is then lined with cookie crumbles to resemble the residual grave-escape dirt, dotted with cookie "graves", and decorated with zombie cutout cake picks to form a delightful dessert that is creepy and cute all at once. More

Ginger Caramel Apple Galette

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa Post a comment

As October exhausts itself, apples in all their glorious shades and colors pile high in outdoor market bins and are turned into warm cider and doughnuts. Some of my favorite costumes for apples are sugary coatings like scarlet candy shells, and particularly, sticky caramel blankets. With that in mind, melted caramels lurk in a mound of tart Granny Smith apples bubbling in butter, brown sugar, and vibrant lemon. More

Dulces: Pan de Muerto

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

Food is a central part of Día de los muertos. Pan de muerto is a sweet, soft bread, coated with sugar and made fragrant with the beautiful aroma of orange blossom water. Even if you won't be rapping your knuckles on stranger's doors on behalf of your calaverita, this is a festive and curious bread that's worth trying. More

Zero Proof: Warm Witch's Brew

Serious Eats Christianne Winthrop 1 comment

Whether you're taking to the streets or staying home to pass out candy, try stirring up a witch's brew in your cauldron this Halloween. Made with equal parts pomegranate and cranberry juices, this deliciously dark (but alcohol-free) concoction is perfect for sipping between trips to the front door or packed into a Thermos for a spooky night out with candy-seeking trick-or-treaters.

Scooped: Pumpkin Brownie Chunk Ice Cream

Sweets Max Falkowitz 2 comments

As we get older, Halloween should get more fun, not less. Parties. Pumpkin beer. The realization that you can buy as much of your favorite candy as you want without any social stigma. Halloween becomes the holiday that embraces our younger selves as well as our mischievous adult natures. I'm not the biggest pumpkin fan, but on Halloween I go nuts. More
