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


500g Plain flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
3/4 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon Ginger
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Allspice
225g Butter
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
175g Golden syrup
Icing sugar


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.
