Looking for a sweet way to celebrate Yule? Then read on, because not only are these Yule Prosperity Cookies deliciously moreish, they come with a lovely ritual to help attract prosperity.
And let’s face it… with the way 2020 has treated many of us, a little prosperity right now is most welcome!
Now I’m no baker and cooking isn’t something you normally see on The Witch at OneandSeventy, but I really wanted to share this one with you. But don’t feel you have to follow the ritual if you don’t practice. If all you’re after is a great recipe for Yuletide cookies, then this is it.
Unusually for me (you know how I like to waffle on!), this post is going to be short and (ahem) sweet (!), as I’m going to send you over to Emma at Eclectic Witchcraft for the full method and ritual. But if you’re in the UK, I thought you’d appreciate the measurement conversions.
It’s worth noting the bowls are for mixing by hand, but I used my KitchenAid because a) I love it and don’t use it enough and b) because I am lazy.
I also didn’t have any of the suggested incense, so I left that part out. Instead, I placed my little Jade Buddha where the incense would have gone – Jade being a stone that has long been associated with wealth in all its forms.
Finally, I realised that I don’t have a ritual bell, so I improvised with my “ring for coffee” bell. Hey! It works!
As I always say, pathworking is all about intention. It’s about doing what FEELS right and I urge you to do the same. Please don’t allow not having the “right” piece of equipment prevent you from following a ritual. Your greatest tool is yourself and I’m a great believer in using what you have to hand to cast your magic.
So as promised, here are the main metric ingredients for The Eclectic Witch’s Yule Prosperity Cookies. For the full recipe and ritual, click HERE. You’ll find that Emma’s also included some handy correspondences for each of the spices and candles, as well as alternative incense ideas and more ways to help you manifest prosperity.
