Spider Cookies

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 9-11 minutes

I find that this recipe works best with a pipping bag with a very fine tip, or you can do what I did and use a Ziplock baggie and cut off a very small piece off of the bottom corner.


  • 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbs. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 egg at room temperature
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (plus additional 1/2 cup for decorating)
  • 1 cup melting chocolate of your choice (I used dark chocolate)


  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until everything is incorporated and smooth.
  3. Add in one egg at a time making sure to mix well after each egg. Add in the vanilla and combine.
  4. Gradually start to add in the dry ingredients to the wet. Once your mixtures are combined add in the chocolate chips. Mix well and refrigerate 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line some baking sheets with some parchment paper.
  6. Taking about 2 tbs of cookie dough roll into a ball. Place on the baking sheet and press down slightly with the palm of your hand. Continue to do this spreading the cookies apart about 2 inches from each other.
  7. When you’re done take the spare chocolate chip and put 3-4 chips into the cookie making the flat part face up.
  8. Bake cookies 9-11 minutes or until cookies are golden brown around the edges.
  9. Let cookies cool completely.
  10. In a microwave safe bowl add in your melting chocolate and melt in the microwave at 30 second increments making sure to stir every 30 seconds.
  11. Place melted chocolate into your pipping bag or Ziploc baggie. Taking one cookie at a time start to draw a dot on the bottom and top of each flat chocolate chip. Then draw 3 lines on each sides for legs.
  12. Let the chocolate dry and ENJOY!
