Celebrate Halloween with these spooky cookies!
This easy to make, no-spread cookie dough is perfect for your shaped treats. I’ve used a bat and ghost cutter from Iced Jems.
Below, I show you how to bake and decorate these ghoulish goodies with ready to roll icing!
Roll out your chilled dough on a surface dusted with cornflour between spacers (or to ¼” thick) with a non-stick rolling pin.
Put your cookie dough shapes on lined baking trays and chill again for a further 30 mins. Bake for 15 minutes at 180C or until golden brown.
Once cooled, roll out white icing and using the cookie cutter, cut out your shape. Stick it onto the cookie using piping gel.
Using a small amount of black icing, roll three small balls. Two for the eyes, one for the mouth and fix in place with a little edible glue.
