Halloween Baking – πŸŽƒπŸͺ

Happy Halloween! πŸŽƒ

Since posting my first baking post, I’ve had an overwhelming amount of positive feedb on my blog. Therefore, in the spirit of this season, and indeed today, I thought I’d share with you a great Halloween recipe. Enjoy!

Buttery fork cookies *pumpkin edition*

Ingredients

  • 125g/41/2 oz unsalted butter, softened
  • 125g/41/2 oz caster sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 100g/31/2 oz plain flour
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon

*Disclaimer – only 1oz of sugar is actually added to the dough. Next time I may measure less sugar as I didn’t use it all.

InstructionsΒ 

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degree celsius/400 F/ Gas mark 6
  2. Place butter and 25g/1oz of sugar in a bowl and beat together.
  3. Add yolk to bowl and mix together.
  4. Sift in the flour and mix to form a soft dough.
  5. Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon in a seperate bowl.
  6. Take 1tsp of mixture and roll in sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  7. Place of baking sheet and use fork to press down until cookie is 1cm/1/2inch thick.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 10minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Leave to cool.

*As you can probably tell, my cookies didn’t keep their pumpkin shape or resemble the picture within the book. However, there’s nothing a bit of icing can’t fix!

Decoration


I made these cookies as a last minute Halloween post idea and I didn’t have all of the ingredients I needed (including orange food colouring). So, I improvised. They’re nowhere near as perfect as I wanted them to be, but they taste great! I hope you can see the vague pumpkin shape or at the very least, like their colourful design.

I hope you enjoyed this imperfect post. Let me know what you think in the comments. I hope you all have a pumpkin spice, fun filled Halloween! πŸŽƒ

Until next time keep dreaming x
