I don't really do Hallowe'en but I like to have something to offer to any children who knock on my front door.  So I spent this afternoon baking and icing and now have a plateful of these to hand out.

I heard on Radio 4 this morning that the average UK family spends £65 on Hallowe'en (whatever do they buy for that sum?) but I am pleased to report that these ghoulish biscuits only set me back a couple of quid.


  1. 65Pound on average sounds even more scary then some of those silly decorations! YOur biscuits look great though :-)

    1. Thanks. They brought a smile to the face of approximately 50 children this evening.

  2. Hello

    Welcome back!! Lovely biscuits!

    1. Thanks Poppy Basil. It's been a while.

      Great to see you at the carol concert the other week. Best wishes for the New Year.

  4. Your biscuits are fantastic. Lucky children! Mine just got fun-size mars bars. I am shocked by that statistic you mention - we don't really do Halloween in our house. £2.50 on a pumpkin is about it!

    Thanks for your recent comments on my blog and thoughts re sponsorship and ads. Sometimes needs must.

  5. I was shocked too and shudder to think what giddy heights it might reach for Christmas!
