Halloween! Spider Cookies

Recipe By

Prep Time: 30 minutes, Cooking Time: 15 minutes, Serves: 15 Cookies

Cookie Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 225g sugar
  • 180g Pic's Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 60g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 185g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp milk (optional)

Ingredients to decorate

  • 15 tsp your jam of choice
  • 15 chocolate truffle balls
  • 1 x White writing icing tube
  • 30 black sesame seeds
  • 1 x Black writing icing tube


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until a dough has formed. If the dough is too dry to stick together, add in 1 Tbsp milk at a time until it does.
  3. Roll the dough into balls (approx. 45g per ball) then place onto the lined baking tray and use your index finger to press a hole in the middle of each ball. Repeat this step with the rest of the dough.
  4. Bake the cookies in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. If needed, reshape the holes using the back of a teaspoon while the cookies are still malleable.
  5. Once the cookies have cooled, fill each of the cookies with 1 heaped tsp of jam/jelly. Top each with a chocolate truffle and using the white writing icing, pipe 2 white dots onto each truffle for the eyes of the spider. Carefully poke a black sesame seed into the centre of each ‘eye’ before using the black writing icing to pipe 4 lines on each side of the cookie for the ‘legs’.
  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
