The new Disney movie, Oz The Great and Powerful, premieres this Friday. To get you in the "enchanted" mood, we've whipped up two fabulous Oz-inspired recipes!
Nothing will get you more excited for the premiere than a big glass of Wicked Witch of the West brew or an "escape to Oz" hot air balloon cookie, right? These adorable and easy recipes will have you clicking your ruby red slippers together in no time!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out dough to about 1/8-inch thickness on a floured surface. Using a balloon or hot air balloon cookie cutter, cut out shapes. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 7-9 minutes, or until slightly golden. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
Meanwhile, make icing by mixing the sugar, corn syrup, water/milk and vanilla until thick and creamy. Separate the icing into 4 bowls and dye them their respective colors.
Using the paintbrush, carefully paint the cookies to look like balloons (we did three sets of red, blue and white and then painted the bottom portion orange). You can also outline where you want to place the colors with white icing gel and fill in that way.
