Saffron Crescent Cakes for Ashtoreth

These are traditionally baked in honor of Ashtoreth, but they are appropriate for any Goddess associated with the Moon. To honor those harvest deities not associated with the Moon, simply cut into round or other shapes, and bake as directed. Saffron expensive, so you may prefer to substitute yellow food coloring, an additional 1/4 cup honey, or 1/3 cup chopped nuts instead.

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/4 honey
2 cups all purpose flour
3 T.. baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4-1/2 tsp. saffron

Mix egg, milk, oil, and honey in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir until just mixed. Cut into wedges and roll up, starting at the rounded edge. Place on greased cookie sheet with points down and shape into crescents. Bake for 20 minutes at 400F.
