Gluten Free Halloween Biscuits

Love this time of year πŸ‘»πŸπŸ‚πŸŽƒ (I might have said that before πŸ˜€πŸ˜€)

These rather ghoulish biscuits are a great gluten free treat for any party or after getting back after some Trick or Treat’ing.

Gluten free biscuits can be a bit hit and miss, in terms of recipe and baking. Many a time I have tried a recipe only for the finished bake to be one big puddle of dough. Β It’s all in the lack of gluten, there isn’t anything to hold it together. So I tend to look at a mix of flours, rather than alternative binding agents.

These can be put together relatively quickly and require no β€˜resting’ or putting in the fridge.

100g soft butter

180g Caster sugar

1 large egg

200g Rice flour

160g cornflour

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Green, black and red colouring

Pre-heat your oven to gas 5/180c/170c fan.

Line 3 trays with greaseproof

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy and then beat in the egg, then essence.

Sift together the 2 flours and then stir into the fluffy mix, until you can bring the whole lot together to form a soft but firm dough ball. Β Divide the mix into 2 and add you colouring as desired.

Roll out to your desired thickness, roughly the thickness of a pound coin, 2-3mm and cut out the shapes using your desired cutter.

Depending on the size of your cutter, this recipe will make approx 20-25 cookies/biscuits.

Place the raw cookies on the lined trays and bake, one tray at a time, for approx 8-10 minutes. Leave to cool before removing from the tray.

I decorated with red coloured glacΓ© icing, but you are of course free to decorate as you wish.
