Scary-Spicy shortbreads
Fall is here again, and October is like a long endless falling into the dark and cold. Not very cheering. Though, there is a very special celebration coming up, from a long and old tradition started in Ireland but really spread in US. This is the spell of Halloween!

I have to make a confession. I am not really keen on American celebrations, but last year I tried for the first time to organize a Halloween party at home. It had been such a success, that I do it again this year, and all my friends are just looking forward. They are all looking for costumes and ideas.

Part of the success of the party was the food I

prepared, I would like to share with you this recipe of scary spicy shortbreads that were literally devoured! I hope it will give you some new ideas for your Halloween party, even if it comes from a French fellow!

Ingredients for 40 shortbreads
- 250 grs of wheat flour
- 125 grs of butter out of the fridge 30 min in advance
- 1 egg
- 1tea spoon of cinnamon
- 1 tbs. of cumin seeds
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/2 tea spoon of nutmeg

- 1 egg
- black pepper

1. In a large bowl, put together the floor and all the spices and salt. Mix. 

2. Add the egg and the smooth butter. Start to mix with your fingers tips, and step by step make the ingredients gets together, till you get a ball. Place the dough in a film and let it in the fridge for 30 min.

3. Turn the oven on to 180ÂșC.

4. Take dough out of the fridge, and roll it till it is 1 cm thick. Then, use some halloween shapes to cut the shortbreads, or do it on your own. I did not have some special shapes, so used a glass to make rounds, and then with a sharp knife, I created monsters, skulls and devils!!! I have to say that it is quite long but so much fun! Do it with your kids, you will just have a great time!

5. Place your scary faces on buttered baking tray, brush them with a mix of whisked egg and black pepper. They will get shiny. 

6. Put them in the oven for 20 min. Check if they are golden, and take them out, let them cool and devour them! You can also keep them in an air tight box for 2 weeks. So it is a great one to do in advance for the party!
