spiderweb cookies

As I previously mentioned here, I made these spiderweb suger cookies for a Halloween party




I actually took a few pictures during the process so I'll give the recipe and then break it down
a little with the pictures I took.


Suger {Butter} Cookies

1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Cream Shortening. Add Sugar, eggs & vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
Roll out dough to desired thickness, cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. Let Cool

Frosting

2 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar (about 3-4 cups)

Heat together butter, milk & vanilla. Add powdered sugar till thick enough to spread.


Chocolate Cookies

1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add in addition to rest of cookie ingredients.


And here's the process with pictures:

After dough has been mixed and refrigerated; roll out and cut




Bake at 375 for 10 minutes




Let cool before frosting




To ice the cookies I pretty much followed these instructions, but instead of doing
a spiderweb shape, i just did a circle and let the web "techniqe" speak for itself
(give me a break, it was easier and have you seen how good her stuff looks?!)




Here's the finished cookies!
