The autumn harvest brings an abundance of delicious and nutritious fruit and vegetables, from apples and cranberries to beetroot and, of course, pumpkin. These giant orange beauties are synonymous with this time of year, especially when they’re carved into spooky Halloween lanterns. Beyond savoury stews and soups, they also make delicious sweet treats too – like in this recipe.

This recipe makes 30 scrumptious cookies.
