Easy to make and perfect for Halloween! I used gel food colouring but liquid should be fine-you just may not need any milk

Ingredients

  • 100g butter, chilled
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 175g plain flour
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2tsp mixed spice
  • Orange food colouring
  • Whole cloves
  • 2tsp milk (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 160degrees/140fan Grease a large baking sheet
  • STEP 2
    Mix together the flour, sugar and spices Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
  • STEP 3
    Add a dollop of food colouring and knead the mixture until it forms a dough, add a little milk if needed. At this stage add more food colouring to reach your desired colour
  • STEP 4
    Take a heaped teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball, Mark vertical lines in the side of the ball to form a pumpkin shape, go quite deep to prevent the lines fading out while cooling.
  • STEP 5
    Place a clove into the top of each ball and place it onto the tray. Continue until all the dough has been used up
  • STEP 6
    Bake for around 35minutes or until the biscuits are firm and the bases have darkened, if baked too little they will be raw in the middle!
  • STEP 7
    Leave to cool before enjoying!
