It's only September and I've already got Halloween on the brain.
It is my favourite holiday (if you can could call it as a holiday). I love the spooky and the weird and the gross - if I can combine that with baked goods, then all the better right? I've been imagining up Halloween treats for a while now - most of which were pretty elaborate. After pondering for a while, I decided that maybe I should start off slowly -- like I said, it's only September.
These are simple pumpkin spice cookies - nice and thick. Super chewy in the middle. I thought I'd toss some lemony royal icing, with some extra web on top. Next time, I think I'll pipe the icing out instead of spreading so I can get a cleaner look.
Now where's the itsy bitsy spider?
