A Frighteningly Tasty Treat For Halloween

(NAPSA) - If you want to scare up some delicious trick-or-treats for your child's Halloween party, consider making some bewitchingly easy Walnut Moon cookies.

These melt-in-your mouth cookies are easy to bake because they call for Shedd's Spread Country Crockš Spreadable Sticks, which blend easily straight from the refrigerator.

Besides being handy for cooking, baking and easy spreading on toast or bread, the sticks add fresh country flavor to whatever recipe they are used in. Country Crock also comes in tubs and a convenient squeeze bottle.

The cookies make a wholesome addition to any witching hour and after you finish using the Country Crock three-pound tub, you can give it to your little ghosts and goblins to go trick-or-treating with.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) Shedd's Spread Country Crockš Spreadable Sticks
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts


In large bowl, with electric mixer, beat Shedd's Spread Country Crock and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Gradually beat in flour until blended. Stir in walnuts. Turn dough onto plastic wrap and shape into flat circle. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Divide dough into 8 pie-shaped wedges. On lightly floured surface, roll each wedge into 1/2-inch log, 12 inches long; cut each log into 4 equal pieces. Shape into crescents and arrange on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 15 minutes or until edges are lightly golden. On wire rack, let stand 2 minutes; remove from sheets and sprinkle generously with additional confectioners sugar while still warm. On wire rack, cool completely.

Serving Size: Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies
