Spooky spider cookies

Take inspiration from our American friends with this creepy spider cookie bake!

We’re big fans of halloween, and not least because of the endless spooky baking fun that’s to be had! That’s definitely true in the case of these spooky spider cookies. Combining peanut butter biscuits with pretzel legs, these will make halloween for any trick-or-treaters heading your way!

Take a look at the recipe from Skippy® below – and you won’t need to worry about running out, as this should make a whopping 66 cookies!

Author Skippy®

Ingredients

  • 340 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 jar Skippy® peanut butter smooth
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 170 g caster sugar
  • 165 g light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 180°C/ 350°F.

  2. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well.

  3. In large bowl, beat together peanut butter and margarine with electric mixer until smooth. Beat in granulated and brown sugars, then eggs and vanilla until blended. Beat in flour mixture just until blended.

  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On ungreased baking sheets, arrange cookies 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes or until lightly golden. If decorating like spiders, remove to cool on baking sheets 2 to 3 minutes. Decorate to look like spiders, if desired.

  5. If decorating like spiders, gently press mini chocolate button or chunk into top of each cookie while still warm. When chocolate starts to melt, attach thin pretzel "legs" by placing end of pretzel into melted chocolate. Cool completely then attach mini coated candy pieces for "eyes" and mini sugar pearls for "pupils" with peanut butter.
