We were a little lazy in the Halloween-celebration-department this year, but did get around to making some sugar cookies. A few weeks ago, I was browsing one of my favorite stores ever, Crate & Barrel, when I saw a spider-web cookie cutter (!!!). My son has been very into spiders this fall (as I believe I have previously mentioned) so I started thinking about the awesome Halloween cookies we could make. And then, it got even better. I found these great Halloween cupcake stencils, one of which was a spider. I had to grab both, of course, and made sugar cookies deliberately so we could try out our new stuff. I took the easy-route with cookie-baking and opted to sprinkle sugar on the unbaked cookies rather than make frosting. They turned out pretty well and my son was thrilled.
The spider-web cookie cutter seems full of possibilities to me. Can you imagine the adorable super-hero cookies with words reminiscent of the 1970s Batman TV show? BAM! KABLOOEY! KA-POW!
