Bake some Funnybones biscuits

You will need:

•  125g butter

•  50g light brown sugar

•  50g dark brown muscovado sugar

•  2 tbs golden syrup

•  1 tbsp treacle

•  2 tsp ground ginger

•  1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

•  300g plain flour

•  Royal icing to decorate

How to make them:

1.  Sieve the ginger, bicarbonate of soda and flour into a large bowl

2.  Melt the butter, sugars, syrup and treacle in a saucepan, then stir into the dry ingredients

3.  When the mixture has come together, roll out between two sheets of baking parchment, to about 5mm thick.  Place on a baking tray and leave in the fridge to chill for approximately 20 minutes

4.  Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan. Use a large gingerbread man cutter to cut approximately ten cookies. Place the cookies on a lined baking tray and bake for 12 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to darken

5.  Once the cookies have cooled, pipe royal icing bones and faces on the cookies, and allow to set.

Now you have some deliciously spooky skeleton biscuits to create the perfect Halloween party, just try not to eat them all at once!

  • Funnybones


  • This is how the story begins.
    On a dark dark hill
    there was a dark dark town.
    In the dark dark town
    there was a dark dark street . . .

    This new edition of the classic story includes an accompanying CD, featuring the story read by acclaimed comic actor Stephen Mangan.

    Janet and Allan's frightfully funny Hallowe'en classic tells the story of three skeletons - a big skeleton, a little skeleton and a dog skeleton - who venture out of their cellar one night to find someone to scare, only to find that everyone is in bed. Who will they scare now?!
