Spooky Chocolate Biscuits

These biscuits can be made into different shapes and decorated with icing for different occasions. I've scoured the local shops for Halloween cookie cutters (I should've been more organised and ordered them in advance from Amazon!) so we're making round cookies with a spider's web design iced on.
This recipes makes around 25 biscuits.
  • 250g/10oz plain flour
  • 50g/2oz cocoa
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 175g/7oz spreadable butter/sunflower spread (not the low fat stuff unless you want soggy biscuits!)
  • 175g/7oz soft brown sugar
  • 1 medium egg
Cream the butter and sugar and beat in the egg.
Mix in the dry ingredients until you have a soft, but not sticky dough. If the dough is sticky just add in a bit more flour.
Chill the dough for 30-60 minutes.
Roll out on a floured board and cut into shapes.
Place on a greased baking sheet and cook for 12-15 minutes at 180C/Gas 4.
Cook on a wire rack.

When cool, decorate with icing.
