These spooky little bat cookies are so easy to make and are ideal for Halloween parties. Use them as party favours or as a little gift for your trick or treaters! All you need is a bat cookie cutter, biscuit dough and black and orange icing! Here’s how to make them…
Bake your Bat Biscuits
For our sugar cookies we always follow Biscuiteers easy vanilla biscuit recipe from their blog. Golden syrup and granulated sugar add a really nice flavour and texture to the biscuits, Biscuiteers use this recipe in their bakery every day! Create your cookie dough and cut out bat shapes using our bat cookie and sandwich cutter, then bake according to Biscuiteers recipe. You should be left with a batch of uniform, golden biscuits.
Outline with Line Icing
Next follow Biscuiteers recipe for line icing. We use the all in one method for our royal icing (royal icing sugar and water) that creates a toothpaste-like consistency which is what you need for line icing! Add a drop of black food colouring then pipe the outline above onto your sugar cookie and allow to dry. Make sure you use gel colour otherwise you’ll use a lot of food colouring and your icing will become runny!
Flood your Biscuits
Again, we use a recipe from Biscuiteers for our flood icing which produces a more runny consistency. Add your black food colouring and put your icing into a squeezy bottle. Squeeze the icing into the space but don’t add to much as it’ll flow over your line icing. It’s better to use a small amount of icing then tap the edges of your biscuit to cover it.
The Finishing Touches
Use orange line icing to give your bat biscuits their finishing touches! Outline under the bat’s wings and around the body then add two orange eyes!
