A Tasty But Spooky Tree!

Halloween may almost be over, but here in Stockholm the half term holiday has just begun, and the week has been dedicated to spooky happenings and day of the dead activities throughout the museums in town.

We decided to make a Halloween table piece to continue the celebrations…

…. ghosts, bats, skulls, witches and spiders hang from gnarled old branches covered with moss….


250g  flour

150g  butter

90g   icing sugar

grated rind of half a lemon

1 tbsp milk


To make..

Mix flour, butter and icing sugar in to crumbs. Add lemon rind and milk, and make in to a dough – chill in fridge for 20 minutes.

Cut in to Halloween shapes with cutters, and put in oven for 15 minutes at 160 degrees C / 325 degrees F.
