    Chef #208121's Note:

    From a request here is a post on a traditional Halloween recipe. From Texarkana Pagan and Witches group on MSN originally. Soul cakes were the original trick-or-treat goody. Irish peasants would go door-to door on All Hallows Eve begging homeowners for food to celebrate the occasion. Soul cakes were given to them. This ensured the homeowner would be free from a curse or prank; instead, the receivers would offer prayers for them that would help them get into heaven.

      I've been making this recipe for 3 years now. When we first moved into our house in 2011, I am pretty positive I saw a ghost of some sort. My sister, being the wicca-dabbling anthropologist she is, suggested I make soul cakes as an offering. So, I stumbled upon this recipe and have been making these delicious morsels ever since. SUPER simple recipe--which makes them even better, I think. Plus, the combination of spices is terrific! I almost want to try increasing the amount of a couple of the spices next time to see if I get can the slightly spicier flavor that I prefer. Either way--simple, delicious and I prefer to slightly undercook these, as I prefer all cookies less crispy/crunchy.
