Spooky Spider Web Cookie


I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We went to a local pumpkin farm while my parents were visiting.  There were so many fun activities; hay rack rides, giant corn maze, pedal cars, jumping pillow, train ride, animals, haunted house, a playground and so much more.  My 6 year old was in heaven!  I think his quote was "Mom, thank you 1 million, trillion, billion, bazillion times for taking me here."  We now have our giant pumpkins and are ready for carving next weekend when my husband gets to come visit!


 Halloween is 7 days away!  Are you excited?  Hopefully I can get you in the mood this week with all of my fun treats!  Today I have a Spider Web Cookie for you.  I made this with a chocolate chip cookie base, but you could really use almost anything.  You could use a brownie, or a sugar cookie, or even a cupcake.  Anything you want to put frosting on would work well!



Spiderweb Cookie
Printable Recipe

1 8 inch round chocolate chip cookie (any chocolate chip cookie recipe baked in an 8 in cake pan)
1 batch of butter cream frosting (recipe found here)
Black Icing
Toothpick

Frost your 1 inch round chocolate chip cookie.  Try to make it as smooth as possible.  Pipe the black icing in circles, starting at the center and getting larger as you go out.  Drag a toothpick from the center straight out to the edge.  Clean it off after each swipe.  This will give it the "spider web" affect.  Decorate with spider rings or other toy spiders you can find.

That cookie is awesome! I would love to see Dudette's face if I put something that big in front of her. I need to get me some black icing.

Even though it plainly says cookie in the title I thought this was a cake until I looked at the ingredients! It looks like an awesome cookie, anyway. I need to start decorating more, you're an inspiration!

Beautiful job on the frosting! It looks fantastic. Aren't pumpkin farms the best?! My kids could spend days, probably even weeks, at the fun ones. :)

Great idea, Erin. I have never thought about baking a round cookie. I sometimes throw the batter into a square dish but the circle is so fun!

Very cool cookie, Erin! Sounds like you had a great weekend. As an adult...I still love the pumpkin patch!

Very cute and smart too. I can make this and tell my husband...."I ate just one cookie" Might have to skip the spiders though, I hate BUGS :)
