Gluten Free Halloween Cookies

The popularity of Halloween appears to be growing in our neighbourhood with residents decorating homes with spooky flare – lots of spider webs, skeletons, pumpkins and the odd fake graveyard. I guess any activity that involves dressing up and eating lollies is bound to be welcomed by most. I had fun making these sweet gluten free treats for Halloween in our house. I used a bat shaped cutter for these biscuits, but you can use a stencil or cutter of your choice to create your own ghoulish creatures.

300g gluten free all-purpose plain flour
½ cup gluten free icing sugar
1 tsp xanthan gum
160g butter, chopped
1 egg white

Place sifted flour, xanthan gum and icing sugar in food processor.  Add chopped butter and using the pulse button, process until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  Add egg white and pulse until combined. Place dough on a piece of plastic wrap lightly dusted with GF flour and using hands gently shape into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 mins.
Roll out pastry to required thickness. Cut to shape and place on an oven tray, lined with baking paper. Bake at 170C for 15-20 mins until pastry is golden. Cool then decorate.
Note: I used Queen brand gluten free Ready-to-Roll fondant icing in classic white to cover these biscuits.  It worked really well. I then piped red icing to complete the bat look! Have fun.
