Spooky Halloween Biscuits

Miss Tib's loves to bake so last week we made some halloween biscuits. I picked up some cookie cutters post halloween last year in Waitrose heavily reduced and put them away for this year. We made a simple shortbread biscuit, cut them out using the cutters and then decorated them together. They are really quick, easy and toddler friendly to make. I thought i'd share the recipe with you in case you are looking for some seasonal baking ideas this half term:



Ingredients
- 250g Plain flour
- 75g Caster sugar
175g Butter

Method

Heat the oven to 160 degrees C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, then add the sugar.

Rub in the butter

Knead well to form a smooth dough

Flour the table surface and rolling pin, roll out to about 1cm thick and cut into any shape
Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or so until pale and golden

While your biscuits are in the oven mix together some icing sugar, water and food colouring to decorate your biscuits with. We chose orange for halloween.

Decorate with whatever you like, we chose sugar stars & sprinkles as well as some white chocolate stars and popping candy for a  yummy 'trick or treat' surprise.

We made eyes  and mouths out of some ready to roll black and white icing for some added fun .

Miss Tib's really enjoyed making these spooky biscuits and they were really tasty too. The recipe can be used for any occasion and makes a yummy, crumbly shortbread. They are just as tasty left undecorated too, we often make stars and hearts to have with ice cream as a tea time treat. We're going to make another batch for the 31st October and the little ladies have decided they want to make them into green monsters with lots of eyes!

I hope you have fun making them.

Enjoy!
