Instructions

Cookie batter Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla and combine.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda and cocoa. If you used unsalted butter add 1/4 tsp salt to this. Use a whisk to combine and set aside.
  4. Into the creamed butter/sugar mixture, beat in the eggs.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and combine using a mixing spoon.
  6. Form the dough into balls roughly the size of golf balls.
  7. Place 6 balls evenly spaced onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes. Once the first 6 are done, then the next can go into the oven.
  8. It’s important to avoid crowding the cookie sheet so that the cookies don’t all become 1 giant cookie. It’s a good idea to have 2 cookie sheets on hand so you can get one ready while the other ones bake.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool for a couple minutes on the cookie sheet before moving them to a cooling rack.
  10. Once cookies have cooled completely they can then be decorated.
  11. In a small bowl heat up the chocolate frosting for about 30 seconds in the microwave and give it a stir. If you need to heat it up a bit more that’s ok but keep your eye on it since you don’t want it to burn.
  12. Onto each cookie, spread about 1 1/2 tbsps of the chocolate frosting.
  13. Allow the frosting to cool on each cookie.
  14. Into a medium sized zip top bag, spoon in the vanilla frosting.  Place the bag in a microwave safe dish or bowl and heat the frosting for 30 seconds to warm it up.
  15. Form the bag into a cone shape and cut a VERY small hole at the tip to allow the frosting to come out.
  16. To make the spider web shape start making an X on top of the cookie and then another X.  Then make a spiral on top of the X’s moving from the edge of the cookie to the middle. See photos for reference.
