    For the biscuits

    • 100g butter, at room temperature
    • 115g Siucra Caster Sugar
    • 1 medium egg
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 250g plain white flour

    For the icing

    • Siucra Roll out icing
    • Orange & Black icing colour
    • Siucra Icing sugar

    To prepare the cookies
    Preheat the oven to 190°C.
    Beat the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk until combined.
    Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat again.
    Finally beat in the flour at a low speed to mix. Once mixed form into a ball of dough with your hands.
    Put the ball of dough onto a work surface that you have dusted with flour.
    Roll out the dough to approximately ½ cm thick.
    Cut out shapes using Halloween cookie cutters.
    Lift carefully onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment.
    Bake for 14-15 minutes until golden.
    Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the trap.

    To prepare the icing
    Break off some of the white Siucra Roll out icing and knead until it softens.
    Dust your work surface with Siucra icing sugar.
    Roll the white icing out to a thin layer and cut out the same shapes you used for the biscuits.
    Lift off the work surface carefully. Put a few tiny dots of water on the back and then stick onto your cookies.
    Tear off two more pieces of Siucra Roll out icing and colour one piece orange for the pumpkins and the other black for the bats.
    To colour the icing put a small amount of colour onto the white icing and knead it in until it is well combined. (You may want to wear gloves when doing this.) Add more colour if necessary.

    To decorate
    Use the black and white icing to make eyeballs, mummies, spiders etc.
