Halloween Cookies


  • 160g plain flour
  • 100g chilled butter
  • 65g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • Fondant icing – in a variety of colours

Step 1

Tip the flour into a food processor.

Step 2

Cut the butter into small pieces and drop them into the bowl. Mix until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. If you do not have a food processor, place the flour and butter in a mixing bowl and combine using your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Add the egg yolk, sugar, and vanilla then mix to form a small dough. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Step 4

To bake, preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / gas mark 4. Roll the dough to 3mm thickness on a lightly dusted surface.

Step 5

Cut out the biscuits using the cutter stamp and place them on a greased baking tray.

Step 6

Place in the middle shelf of the oven and bake for approximately 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

Step 7

Transfer the biscuits onto a cooling rack to cool.

Step 8

Once the cookies have cooled it’s time to decorate! To decorate the cookies simply roll out your fondant, cut out with your cookie cutter and place on top of your cookie.
