Pumpkin Biscuits with step by step pictures are really simple and easy to make.
Halloween is a celebration that’s observed in number of countries on October 31. Its also know as All Saints’ Eve. Its not an Indian Culture or Tradition. But we inherit some of the western cultures, so this is one such celebration.
On this Celebration, people or even some organizations call up for a party in which everyone dresses scary and funny costumes. It includes carving Pumpkin into jack-o-lanterns, making spooky treats, playing pranks and kids trick-or-treating. It has nothing to do with religious or tradition.
Lets get in to the recipe, Baked Pumpkin Goodies makes an excellent treat for celebrating Halloween. So I made Pumpkin Biscuits in the shape of pumpkin and hand carved its eyes, nose and mouth to make real Halloween treat.
Let’s talk about the ingredients!
- Pumpkin Puree is the main flavorful ingredient of this biscuit. I used Homemade Pumpkin Puree. Check this method to make Pumpkin Puree in Oven, that I followed from the Pioneer Women Blog.
- I used half brown sugar and half white sugar. Using brown sugar, makes the cookie chewy.
That’s my post for “BM #93” under “Cookies in different forms”.
These lightly sweetened Pumpkin Cookies are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, that's a perfect treat for celebration.
- 130 g (1 cup) All Purpose Flour / Maida
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- Pinch of Baking Soda
- 56 g (1/4 cup) Unsalted Butter
- 1/4 Cup Pumpkin Puree
- 1/4 Cup Castor Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tsp Pumpkin Spice Powder
- 4 tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 2 tsp Ginger Powder
- 1 tsp Clove Powder
- 1/2 tsp Numeg Powder
Mix all the powder in a jar and shake well until mixed. Store it in air tight container for later use.
In a bowl, mix flour, spice, Baking soda and salt. Keep it aside.
Using an electric beater, Beat Butter and sugars till smooth.
Add Pumpkin Puree and beat till mixed.
Add in Egg Yolk and vanilla, beat till light and fluffy.
Add the flour in two batches, beating each time.
Cling wrap the dough and place in fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 200 C and prepare a cookie tray by placing a parchment paper cut to tray size.
Apply flour on a work surface and roll the dough to 1/4 " thickness.
Using a cookie cutter, cut the cookies and place it on a prepared cookie tray. I used a Pumpkin cookie cutter.
Using a sharp knife, I hand carved these cookies to make eyes, nose and mouth.
Place all the cookies with 1" space. Bake it for 12-15 min.
Once cooled, store it in air tight container for up to a week.
