The Pastry Affair - Home - Butterbeer This is part III in a mini-series of Harry Potter snacks from the books brought to life (part I is on Honeydukes treats, part II is all about the cauldron cakes, and part IV showcases decadent butterbeer cupcakes). Last August, my family made the two thousand mile journey to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Orlando has always been one of my family's favorite vacation destinations. On the big day, we woke up at an obscene hour to a bright dawn. This was my moment. When I entered the park, I was immediately swept away by the architecture and the detail. I'm pretty sure I had a grin on my face a mile wide. Believe it or not, "window shopping" was one of my favorite sights in the park. Cauldron shops, music stores, clothing boutiques—I just wish they had all been real. After riding the attractions, it was time to sample everything Hogsmeade had to offer. The recipe for Butterbeers I've posted here features a less sweet version than you'll find at the park.

Penn's Leadership for Social Change Masters Program Harry Potter For our Harry Potter edition of Friday Food Craft we have some super yummy Shortbread cookies made to look like the Deathly Hallows symbol (the triangle represents the cloak, the circle is the stone and the line is the wand). I chose to cut out my cookies into triangle shapes and then press in the circle and line with the back of a knife, and a bottle cap (washed, of course). You could just as easily cut out circle or squares and draw on a symbol with some frosting or chocolate. Yum! To make these cookies (with or without Harry Potter theme) you will need: 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, softened 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour That's it! Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or just use a hand mixer and a bowl of your choosing) whip together your butter and brown sugar. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth, this doesn't take more than 30 seconds to a minute.
