Halloween Spider Cookies
Different from many Halloween treats, these cookies are more cute than they are spooky—perfect for a holiday celebration with little ones (or adults) who don’t like traditional creepy crawlies. With cartoon-like candy eyeballs, these spiders will brighten a room with smiles from those who catch a glimpse. Similar to a peanut butter blossom, this cookie dough is unique in that it puffs and does not spread on its own like most cookies; instead, the baker uses the back of a 1/2 tablespoon measuring spoon to press a crater into the cookie dough while it bakes. This forces the cookie to spread and crack all over while making an ideal mold to hold the chocolate truffle that will be the body of the spider sitting atop the peanut butter cookie. Sweet, slightly salty, and supporting the irresistible lusciousness of a Lindt Lindor truffle, our Halloween Spider Cookies are ready for any October celebration.
