Butterbeer Cookies

Our family was Harry Potter fans the whole time our kids were growing up – how could we not be?  Our kids grew up with Harry Potter; we visited Harry Potter sites in England, went to every movie, read every book, had HP birthday parties, Santa made sure there were Harry Potter stocking stuffers and watched Harry Potter movies every Christmas.  We continue this tradition ever since Christmas Eve 2001 when the first Harry Potter movie came out in England and we were over there visiting family for Christmas.  Now it just wouldn’t seem like Christmas without our beloved Harry Potter…and of course some Harry Potter snacks to go along with the movies. 

There are so many Harry Potter themed recipes out there nowadays; it’s perfect for the 8 movie nights and don’t forget that delicious drink, butterbeer.  I found this recipe and just had to try it to get ready for our first HP Movie night – “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” or is it the Sorcerer’s Stone?  I suppose that depends on which country you’re from.

Do you watch Harry Potter at Christmas?  Or are we just a weird family!
