Spider cookies

Makes 25

 

Ingredients

150g butter

80g brown sugar

80g caster sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

225g plain flour

1/2 teaspoon bread soda

pinch salt

25 chocolate Rolo’s

100g dark chocolate

Edible sugar eyes

 

Method

In a bowl, cream the butter and both sugars.

Add the egg and vanilla and mix.

Finally add the flour, salt and bread soda and mix until a smooth dough is formed.

Wrap in cling and chill for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 170C.

Once the pastry is rested, roll on a floured surface and using a cutter, cut out 25 circles.

Place these on two lined trays and egg wash.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove and allow to cool slightly.

Once cold, stick on a Rolo with some melted chocolate and finish decorating by piping on the legs and adhere the edible eyes onto the Rolo.

 

 

TIP: If you cannot buy edible eyes, just use white and dark chocolate instead
