This is Halloween...

' This is Halloween, this is Halloween
pumpkins scream in the dead of night '

My favourite holiday has come and gone and what a great Halloween it was too!! 

In the morning Benji  and I carved pumpkins and baked cookies for the neighbours. I thought it would be nice to do something a little different then just handing out candy.

Then that night we all dressed up and attended a little Halloween Disco for the kids. If you havent guessed we went as the Frankenstein's :)

It was so much fun seeing everyone from the neighbourhood dressed up and my little Benji  was having so much fun running in and out the room, stopping for a little dance every couple of minutes. We literally had to drag him out screaming when it came time to go home.

Our night ended with family cuddles and scary movies, well the Adams Family until Benji fell asleep :) 

Now to start planning for next year!

In case anyone else would like to do cookies next year here is my recipe...

 Halloween Cookies


250g Unsalted butter, softened
250g Golden caster suger
2 eggs, beaten
tsp vanilla
500g flour
1 tsp baking powder

Halloween cookie cutters
icing - fondant ( different colours/ or use food colouring)
tsp apricot jam
tsp warm water


1. preheat your oven to 160 fan. Cream the butter and suger together then mix in the egg and vanilla.
2. Slowly mix in the flour until it comes together, then tip onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.
3. Wrap in clingfilm and place into the fridge for half an hour.
4. After 30 minutes roll out and cut out your shapes. Place on a baking tray and bake for 12 - 15 minutes.
5. Once baked leave to cool completely. To ice use your cutters to cut of the shape in the fondant icing and then using a little of the apricot jam and water mixture stick it onto your fondant onto your cookie.

This cookie are also great for Christmas, just add a few Christmasy spices :)
