Spider Cookies

These little spider cookies are so easy to make, and so cute, if I do say so myself:)

I'm finally the owner of a peppermint candy cookie cutter, and that's what I used to make the spiders (some with a little witch hat added). I'm actually starting to see something other than the obvious in each cookie cutter.  Maybe, just  maybe, a teeny, tiny bit of Callye (The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle) is rubbing off on me, through osmosis:)  As she says, "Think outside the cutter"!  Callye is the QUEEN of cutter creativity!  

Here's some spiders without their Halloween costumes:)


Spiders usually give me the creeps, but not this variety:)
Sugar cookie spiders are the best, don't you think?


Notes on the Spider Cookies:

The spiders are nade with my favorite sugar cookie/royal icing recipe.

For the little hats, I cut out tiny triangles from the cookie dough and placed it directly against the top of the head before baking.

For the eyes, I used pre-made candy eyes from Michael's.

Have fun decorating your spiders!  Perhaps you can put them in another Halloween "outfit". :)

  11. Sue, These are my favorite cookie you've made (so far);). OK, so I say that about every one you've ever made but it's the truth. I have a box full of cookie cutters. It's time to think outside the box, pun intended. Thanks for the inspiration.

  19. I love that bit of advice!! I looked at that cookie cutter after you mentioned it...and saw the wrapped candy/peppermint. I'm so excited to get out my cookie cutters and do this! I used to make the Martha Stewart spider webs on Halloween because they're easy (flood with white...black spiral..pull through with a skewer - and of course you know this lol) but now I want to venture! Your spider are awesome, Sue!
