Trick or Treat!  Here’s some fun facts about Halloween and a really yummy gluten free peanut butter cookie shaped like a witch hat. Let the kids help –  it’s that easy!

How did trick or treating come about?

It began in the Middle-Ages, children and sometimes poor adults would dress up in costumes and go around door to door during Hallowmas the night before all souls day,  begging for food or money in exchange for songs and prayers, often said on behalf of the dead.


You might think that this practice then simply migrated along with Europeans to the United States. But trick or treating didn’t re-emerge until the 1920s and 1930s. It paused for a bit during World War II because of sugar rations, and it’s now back in full force.





1 cup peanut butter


1 cup sugar


1 large egg


1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 and spray baking sheets. Beat everything together well. It will look sticky. That’s OK. 

 Roll into small balls and put 1” apart on baking sheets. Flatten with fork in crosshatch pattern.

Bake about 10-11 minutes.  Don’t overbake. They will continue to bake as they cool on the cookie sheet. Makes about 24.


Tip from Rita’s kitchen: Witches Hats


 If you want, right after they come out of the oven, push a milk chocolate “kiss” in the center of the cookie.  Now you have a witches hat cookie!
