Halloween is not just a time to be spooky. It is also a time when all is allowed to overindulge in sweets. It is nice to nibble on biscuits while waiting for trick-or- treaters or, if feeling generous, offer them some. It takes just a few ingredients to make these treats. I've cut them in Halloween shapes but they can be cut in any shape. In fact, they can simply be rolled into balls and pressed down with the tines of a fork.


1 c. butter
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 cup skimmed milk powder
2 1/2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract


Cream the butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add the sugar and milk powder while beating, until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract. Stir in the flour. Cover and refrigerate the dough to firm it it up. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F/180 degrees C. 

Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut into shapes. I find it easier to roll the dough on a lined (with non-stick liner or baking paper) baking sheet, stamp out the shapes, then peel off the excess. Re-roll dough and cut more shapes. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or the until golden brown and firm to the touch. Leave in the pan for 2 minutes before lifting onto a cooling rack.
