100 Word Challenge for Grownups – Pie of Newt

I should probably apologize for three posts in one day, but Julia at the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups has asked us to provide recipes fit for a witch, and I wanted to offer mine before Halloween comes to an end. Let me know what you think – is this truly horrifying?

Not intended for human or animal consumption under any circumstances.

Do not cook this at home, or elsewhere. πŸ˜‰

Pie of Newt

3 newts
10 rotten apples
sugar and cinnamon to taste (bespell somebody else to do the tasting)

1/2 small package of quick-set concrete

Cut newts into bite-sized pieces. Slice apples; do not remove seeds and stems. Mix with sugar and cinnamon.

Line pan with thin layer of concrete. Pour filling into pan. Top with remaining concrete; cut a few steam holes in top crust before concrete hardens. Bake in a medium oven for about 45 minutes.

An excellent treat for testing whether your magic is powerful enough to compel obedience, since no one will eat this concoction voluntarily.

  1. Ah but they would be tempted if you brushed the top with beaten egg before baking this tasty surprise!

  2. Ha! Ha! Ha! I sure would NOT eat it voluntarily either!!

  3. like the last line, though i’m sure concrete’s pretty tasty

  4. Horrifying if one considers trying it! That’s one mean recipe. Great ending.

  5. If you leave out the concrete it looks quite edible.. (always go for the filling)

  6. Definitely needed the health warning as it sounds (almost) good enough to eat!

    • Well, it is sort of a parody of normal apple pie – if you use fresh apples and real piecrust and omit the newts, it should turn out pretty well! (Oh, and leave out the apple stems and seeds πŸ˜‰ ) But always remember, the minimum daily requirement of concrete for a well-balanced diet is really very, very small!
