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!
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". :)
