Witch shaped crackers served with a moon shaped dip.

Ingredients

Cackling Crackers
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 stick unsalted butter, divided
1/3 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon black paste food coloring
1 tablespoon olive oil
Table salt

Full Moon Dip (Chicken Dip)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 (12 oz.) can chunk chicken breast

Special Equipment Needed:
Witch Template (get template from www.hungryhalloween.com)
White card stock paper
Witch shaped cookie cutters
Hand held mixer
9 inch round ramekin or pie plate

Directions

To Create Witch Stencil: Get witch template at www.hungryhalloween.com. The link for the witch template is in the right column listed under templates. You can click on the link to find a full size printable template. Print onto a piece of card stock paper. Cut out image of witch.

Pour flour, baking powder, and kosher salt into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse three times. Add 6 tablespoons butter and pulse 10 times. Add milk and black paste food coloring and pulse until mixture forms a ball. If dough looks dry, add up to a tablespoon of milk.

Pour dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 10 times. Divide dough into three balls. Pour olive oil into a shallow bowl. Place dough balls into bowl and coat them in the oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Lightly flour work surface. Roll dough out as thin as possible. Lay witch stencil on dough and cut out around witch. Cut remaining dough with witch shaped cookie cutters, re-rolling as needed. Place cut outs on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Prick each cracker all over using a fork. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Brush crackers with butter and sprinkle salt, to taste, over tops. Bake for 8-12 minutes until crackers are crisp.
