Halloween Baking : Recipe and Competition

halloween baking bat biscuits

This weekend Lara and I filled the house with the warm, autumny smell of homemade biscuits. We created some halloween treats using the Bat Cookie kit from Dr. Oetker in practice for our planned halloween extravaganza (I'm determined that we are going to make all of our halloween treats this year rather than buy in packets of fun-size).

The kit was really easy to use. We added just 85g of butter to the ready-mixed flour/sugar combo and stirred it into a soft dough.

Then we rolled it out until it was thin enough for us to make about 6 biscuits.

Then Lara set about cutting the cookies using the bat-shaped cookie cutter supplied with the mix. We also cut a few of our own using a pumpkin-shaped cutter and a ghost-shaped cutter.

The cookies baked for just 10 minutes before cooling enough for us to ice.

Lara squeezed the supplied black writing icing to make faces and squiggles. I mixed up some icing sugar with water and then turned half of it orange using food colouring. These made some great biscuits and I think we are now well prepared for halloween.
