The recipe for these delightful cheesy rolls was originally published by the Country Women’s Association in 1937.

Blanched Almonds


Preheat your oven to 220°C or 325°F

Spread a sheet of puff pastry with the mustard.

Sprinkle over the cheese.

Roll tightly.

Cut into slices approximately half an inch (1.5cm) wide).

Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked.

Peanut butter and onion sandwiches

Peanut Butter and Onion Sandwiches

Will our heroic cook survive the horror that is – Peanut Butter and Onion Sandwiches? (insert spooky music here)

OK, so there aren’t a lot of vintage Halloween recipes out there that aren’t haggis~ shudder ~ so I delved into the realm of the weird for this week’s recipe :)


smooth peanut butter

traditional mayonnaise


white bread (with the crusts cut off unless you’re completely uncouth. Like me)



Mix 4 parts of peanut butter to 1 part mayonnaise. For example, 4 teaspoons of peanut butter and 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise.

Butter the bread.

Spread on the peanut butter mix.

Top with fine slices of onions.

Eat it before you chicken out!
