spiced skeletons

Rather than buy more cookie cutters in scary halloween shapes i decided to make my own scary version of the standard gingerbread man. The icing was a little difficult to use, i think i made it too stiff for fear of it dripping off - so i really had to sacrifice all the fine details i had hoped to add! Oh get the idea i hope!
Recipe is easy peasy...

Mixed spice biscuits
250g plain flour
125g butter

125g brown sugar

1 egg

2 tsp mixed spice
pinch of salt

1. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy

2. Beat in egg slowly

3. Sift in flour, salt and spice

4. Mix well and roll out dough

5. Cut out shapes and bake for 15 mins at 190 oC
