Spiced Spider Biscuits

Don’t worry, this recipe doesn’t contain spiced spiders but it is packed full of autumnal flavour to enjoy this Halloween!


  • Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger in a mixing bowl.

  • In a separate bowl, cream the sugar and butter together, beat in the eggs, vanilla and golden syrup. Add the flour mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.

  • Split the dough in half, wrap in clingfilm and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 190C, line a baking tray with baking paper, roll out the dough on to a clean work surface and cut in to circles using a cookie cutter. Place on the prepared baking tray with a decent amount of space between each biscuit and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool.

  • Once cool, melt the chocolate, add to a pipping bag and pipe six lines on to the biscuits to represent legs (see picture). Place a chocolate in the centre of the biscuit, using a mixture of icing sugar and a little water, pipe two white dots on to the chocolate for eyes.
