Halloween Pumpkin Cookie Stack

A pumpkin cookie stack - a great treat for Halloween - cookies stacked into the shape of pumpkins

As soon as I saw it was biscuit week on The Great British Bake Off I knew I wanted to make a pumpkin cookie stack. What I mean is a stack of biscuits with a pumpkin flavour and in the shape of a pumpkin. I have kind of achieved my goal, although I have been told they look more like pineapples. The nice thing about this is that you do not need a special Halloween cutter you just need three circular pastry cutters (or more if you want a bigger pumpkin)

I found these 3-D pumpkin cookies. They have a hollow inside for some treats. I was a bit gutted when I found them as I thought I had come up with the idea myself – but I must have seen them on Pinterest. I hate it when that happens!

I love how you can make them for a party and then break them off to share out. They would also make a great alternative for trick or treaters. I think if I were to make these again I would use some real pumpkin and spices in the icing.  I might also try to make them a bit bigger. Other than that I am quite happy how they turned out, even if they do look more like pineapples!
