Halloween spiced biscuits

The perfect halloween party treat! Have fun making these halloween themed cookies.

Ingredients

  • 150g butter or block baking margarine
  • 100g dark-brown soft sugar
  • 1 medium egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp pure clear honey
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground Greenfields pimento
  • 1/2 tsp Greenfields cinnamon

For decorating

  • 200g icing sugar, sifted
  • Coloured sprinkles
  • Writing icing pens

Method

  1. In a bowl, beat together the butter and sugar with an electric whisk until pale and creamy. Add the egg and honey, then sift in the flour and spices. Mix well to form a dough. Wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5 and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Unwrap the dough and place between 2 clean sheets of clingfilm. Roll out to a 5mm thickness. Using Halloween-themed cutters or 7cm round cutters, cut out 20 shapes and arrange on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake the biscuits for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  4. To decorate the biscuits, sieve the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in enough hot water (about 2 tablespoons) to make a smooth icing. Spread over the cooled biscuits and sprinkle with sprinkles (if using) and decorate with coloured writing icing.
