Spiced Halloween Biscuits

Spiced Halloween Biscuits

Any chance to celebrate something and I am in the kitchen baking or making cocktails.
Here is a rather picture heavy blog post of me making Halloween cookies with a cocktail in toe to help me decorate them.
Those who know me will know that I am not the biggest fan of Halloween because I don’t really care for the scary stuff. That being said, I love the excuse to munch on all the sugary treats.

I had a lot of fun in the kitchen creating these Spiced Halloween Biscuits. They are a little gruesome looking but super cute and very yummy.

I hope you enjoy my Spiced Halloween Biscuits. Let me know if you make them and make sure you send me pictures or tag me on Instagram @itsmegantaylor

    Thank you Megan. I’ll give them a go. I always find my biscuits go hard as soon as they cool down. Any way I can avoid that? I’ll post them on the Gifted Brits site 🙂
