Galletas arañas / Spider cookies

Halloween Spider Cookies

To make these cookies you have to follow the same steps as to make the butter cookies that my little daughter loves so much.

The only thing that changes is the shape, which we will not make with any cookie cutter. In this case we make little balls and once placed on the oven tray, then we flatten a little. They are put in the oven at 180ºC for 10 minutes, and they are removed to make a hole in the center of the cookie. That hole can be made with the help of something that is round or even with your finger. That will be where we place the chocolate  that will simulate the body of the spider. At this time we put it back in the oven again at 180ºC for 5 more minutes.

Once the 5 minutes have passed, they are removed from the oven, and the chocolate is placed directly, so that it sticks with the heat.

While the cookies are in the oven, melt chocolate to simulate the legs of the spider and to glue on the eyes.

Here the link to see the recipe for butter cookies. Now you know that with the same recipe you can make several shapes of cookies, you just have to change the shape we give it, the decoration and the baking time and temperature. I used the same dough for the cookies made with the cookie cutters in the shape of Halloween, spiders and witch fingers.
