STEP 1: CUT THE SWEET SHORTCRUST PASTRY
Place the sweet shortcrust pastry sheet on a lightly floured pastry board.
- scared faces cookies:
with a glass or a cookie-cutter cut some circles. Remember that you need two circles for each cookie. Only on half of them make two holes with a toothpick (the eyes) and a bigger hole for the mouth.
with a glass or a cookie-cutter cut some circles and make a hole in the centre of each cookie with your finger.
- ghost cookies: place the sweet shortcrust pastry in a mould and pus hit well to make it stick.
You can use sweet shortcrust pastry again by kneading it another time.
STEP 2: COOK THE COOKIES
Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Cook the cookies in preheated oven at 200°C for about 10 minutes, then cool them at room temperature.
STEP 3: SCARED FACES COOKIES
Dust the cookies (the ones with eyes and mouth) with icing sugar. Spread on the circular cookies a teaspoon jam and cover with the sugared cookies.
STEP 4: SPIDER COOKIES
Place just a little bit fresh cheese icing in the middle of the cookies and place a chocolate egg on them. Dip the tooth stick in the melted chocolate and draw the spider legs. With icing draw the eyes.
STEP 5: GHOST COOKIES
Fill a pastry bag with the fresh cheese icing, then squeeze it in the sweet shortcrust pastry little baskets. Dip the tooth stick in the melted chocolate and draw the eyes of the ghosts.
