101RECIPES Halloween cookies

Halloween is coming: how about making your kids scare with some showy cookies?
The recipe we propose is composed of two phases: the first where we make short pastry for biscuits and the second where we create fillings and make biscuits.

Prepare flour and let’s do it!

Ingredients for short pastry

  • 200 g of flour 00
  • 120 g of butter
  • 120 g of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • a teaspoon of baking powder

Ingredients for fillings

  • 250 grams of mascarpone
  • 2 tablespoons of icing sugar
  • 1 glass of Nocciolino, one of Pistachetto or one of Vaniglietta
  • 350 grams of whipped cream
  • Chopped pistachios | chopped hazelnuts | Chocolate drops

Preparation of short pastry

  • Take butter, cut it into pieces and soften it
  • Put it in a bowl with sugar and flour
  • Depending on cookie you want to make add cocoa, vanilla or hazelnut
  • Work everything until you get a homogeneous and soft dough
  • Let everything rest for one hour in the refrigerator by wrapping the dough in a film
  • Pick up the dough, roll it out and helping yourself with the most sparkly shapes, make the biscuits
  • Put biscuits in oven at 180° for 20 minutes

Please check them, not all ovens are the same and it may be that your cookies need more or less time in oven.

Preparation of fillings

  1. Take mascarpone and icing sugar and mix them in a large bowl
  2. Depending on filling you’re making, add a glass of:
  3. And mix all with an electric whip
  4. Add whipped cream and mix everything with a wooden spoon
  5. Depending on filling you’re making, add:
    Chopped pistachio nuts
    Chopped hazelnuts
    Drops of chocolate

Now you just have to combine cookies and fillings as you like and your Halloween will be your table ?


You can think of changing biscuits taste by adding cocoa, vanilla or hazelnuts to short pastry and mixing fillings flavors and biscuits such as cocoa biscuit and pistachio filling.
