No, for the most part the Amish do not celebrate Halloween. Perhaps the occasional Amish teen will partake in a trick, possibly a treat. But you won't find most Amish kids dressing up and going door to door. Still, like with most holidays, the Amish will celebrate an occasion through food. Check out this roster of recipes:
Broomstick Cookies: Here is a description of these cookies:
Here is how Barbara described these cookies:
“Was easy to put together, used my hands to mix. I recommend the 15 minutes baking time. That makes a softer cookie, however after leaving to sit for a bit they are becoming more dense. Second batch I did for the 20 minutes and they came off the tray crunchy already. The taste is like a really good brown sugar cookie with a little bit of nut and sometimes a raisin surprise. Mr really enjoyed! I will really enjoy in the morning with my coffee.”
