Halloween Spice Biscuits...


Halloween spice biscuits

Preparation time:20 minutes + chilling
Cooking time:15 minutes
Total time:35 minutes + chilling

Makes: About 20 biscuits


Ingredients
  • 150g Stork (from a block)
  • 100g Waitrose Dark Brown Soft Sugar
  • 1 Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Medium Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp essential Waitrose Pure Clear Honey
  • 300g Waitrose Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Cooks Ingredients Ground Mixed Spice
  • ½ tsp Cooks Ingredients Ground Cinnamon

To decorate:
  • 200g Tate and Lyle Icing Sugar, sieved
  • Coloured sprinkles (optional)
  • Dr.Oetker Writing Icing (Brights and Neon Glitter)

Method:
  1. In a bowl, beat together the Stork 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 Waitrose Halloween Creepy Cookie Cutter or 7cm round cutters, cut out 20 shapes and arrange on an essential Waitrose 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 the Halloween sprinkles (if using) and decorate with the coloured writing icing.

  5. Hi Claire. just the mention of a block of Stork takes me back to me helping Mum in the kitchen as a child. There was nothing to compare. Love all the Halloween decorations that's something we don't get here, but that won't stop me from Pinning your recipe for future reference.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
