Halloween half-term bakes
No tricks and all of the treats with these delicious and easy baking recipes from HLN’s Dotty Miles
These little cookies have just five ingredients so are perfect for making with children. There’s a surprise in the centre of each sandwich too!
They are also completely gluten free. To make them dairy free too, use jam instead of nutella to sandwich them together and melt a little dark chocolate to drizzle over the cookies to give them the same chocolatey fix!
These insanely moorish savoury snacks won’t be around for long but if you need to store them, they will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Or, you can freeze them uncooked and cook them from frozen whenever you like! Just increase the cooking time by 5-10 minutes.
If you’re making these with children, make sure an adult cuts up the squash as they require a large, sharp knife to cut.
If you’re planning on carving out a pumpkin or two this year, save some of that flesh scooped out from the middle to go into these wonderfully soft, moist little cupcakes. The grated pumpkin could also be substituted for carrot in this recipe.
