This Halloween I have created a “Bewitched” inspired sugar cookie. I have been a fan of Elizabeth Montgomery since I was quite young.
Bewitched aired in 1964, prior to my birth, however WGN Chicago showed reruns every afternoon. I would arrive home from school excitedly watch two episodes,
pretend I could twitch my nose, and magically all my problems would be solved. Although I would practice her signature nose twitch
I was never was able to achieve more than a slight move.
Most of the cookies are top coated with added pipe accents.

Recipe for Black Colour:
Royal icing is not a true white therefore if you add black to the icing it will be a dark grey.
To achieve a rich black you need to become a color chemist.
Per 175 grams/ 6-0nuces royal icing
1/8 teaspoon super black extra food paste
1/2 drop violet food paste
1/2 drop green food paste
Prior to adding the color, paddle the royal icing against a grease free board with a small off-set spatula
to eliminate any air bubbles.
Add all colored food pastes to the paddled royal icing and amalgamate until the colour is black.
You may need to play a little bit with amounts depending on your royal icing.

have to admit recreating a childhood memory was a blast!
I have designed a template to transfer the piping lines of Bewitch on the inside of the cookie.
Remember to use a graphite pencil or food safe maker.
