Cooking time

10 to 30 mins


Makes 6-8 biscuits



100g/3½oz unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
100g/3½oz caster sugar
1 free-range egg, lightly beaten
275g/10oz plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
To decorate
400g/14oz icing sugar
3-4 tbsp water
2-3 drops food colourings
Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until combined.

Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, a little at a time, until well combined.

Stir in the flour until the mixture comes together as a dough.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of 1cm/½in.

Using Halloween-style biscuit cutters, cut biscuits out of the dough and carefully place onto the baking tray.

Bake the biscuits for 8-10 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to harden for 5 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.

For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir in enough water to create a smooth mixture. Stir in the food colouring.

Carefully spread the icing onto the biscuits using a knife and set aside until the icing hardens.
