If autumn awakens a desire in you for intense, spicy flavours and wonderfully fragrant bakes, then you're going to love these soft and fluffy squash biscuits. To ensure they remain lovely and soft once they have cooled, it's important not to overbake them. If they collapse a little as they come out of the oven, then you know they're just right. They are delicious with a cup of tea and are also perfect as a snack for the kids. The squash is what makes these biscuits soft, however you can't taste it. To make these biscuits a little more festive-looking, you can ice them once cooled and decorate them with colourful sugar sprinkles.
