Harvest Moon Cookies from THE GOOD WITCH

Tonight would be a great night for a nap...  Cool air, candles snapping happily..

However, it's Autumn...  who wants to sleep when it's so beautiful outside?  I have decided to finally bake the cookies featured on "The Good Witch" series, Harvest Moon cookies.

Here is the recipe.  Stay tuned for results...  Hey, it's an almond cookie dipped in chocolate.  I think it will be fine, huh?

Harvest Moon Cookies
1 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup ground almond meal ( I ordered mine from Amazon)

Preheat the oven to 350˚F
Cream the butter and slowly add in the sugar.  Add in the vanilla and almond extracts and the almond meal.  Work in the flour gradually. Wrap the dough in wax paper or parchment paper and refrigerate for 2 hours. 
Line a cookie sheet with a silpat or parchment paper. These are delicate cookies, so don't handle them too much. Divide the dough into 2 batches, leaving one in the refrigerator. Divide the dough into small 1 teaspoon sized balls and place them on a cookie sheet and slightly flatten with the heel of your hand or a spatula. Bake until just slightly golden brown on the bottoms, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool the cookies and drizzle with white or dark chocolate or cover 1/2 of the cookie in chocolate. Serve with cocoa or chocolate milk for dunking.


  1. Ohhhhh, I love "The Good Witch."

    Cookies featured there? I missed that. but you have shared the recipe. Thank you!

    Happy Haunt-ings,

  2. The best show ever want it to be every week

  3. Cool! I will try these! I watched the very first The Good Witch movie in which she baked them for Jake & Derrick at the police station. Looks yummy!

  4. I believe the cookies on the good witch had cardamom. Any suggestions for adding that ingredient?

  5. The cookies on The Good Witch series do have cardamom, which sound sooo good! These, however, were inspired by the earlier movie. She took them to Jake at the police department. I cannot remember where I found the recipe!Thanks for the comment!

  6. Wow! What a treat to find this recipe from Good Witch. Thanks!
