Halloween Baking Adventure

I had lots of time on my hands around Halloween. So, I decided to pass the time by trying to make some cute Halloween treats. Here's one of my favorites ... Spider Web Cookies. (Please note, I've never taken pictures of food before so these aren't the greatest.)

On my favorite baking blogger's site, Bakerella, I saw a recipe for these cookies and decided to try it for Halloween. Since the recipe used a mix from Betty Crocker, making the cookies was super easy. Then came the fun part - the decorating. Bakerella used Trix cereal for the spiders, but since I'm not a fan of Trix, I picked up some Halloween M&Ms. I used canned Cupcake Frosting that I found in the baking aisle at Wal-Mart for the webs. If I do these again next year, I'll try to find something else. The webs didn't firm up so the cookies couldn't be stacked and were hard to take anywhere. Otherwise, I think they turned out pretty cute. They were definitely yummy!

Thanks Bakerella for the recipe!
