Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 ¼ cups flour

Additional items

  • Blue Food Coloring Gel
  • 24 chocolate covered blueberries
  • 24 Lindor Truffles
  • 1 batch of my easy buttercream frosting linked in instructions below
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together.
  3. Add in the eggs and vanilla, and stir until combined.
  4. Add in the salt, baking powder, and flour. Stir until just combined.
  5. Divide batter in half. Add a few drops of blue food coloring to one half and mix in. Then combine both half and fold together to make multi colored cookie dough. Don’t mix too much or the entire batch will turn blue.
  6. Roll into balls and place onto parchment lined baking sheet. Using the palm of your hand flatten each ball.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  8. Let cool completely before decorating.
  9. Once cookies are cooled, make a batch of my easy buttercream frosting.
  10. Divide frosting in half, dye one half blue and then fold the two halves together just like you did the cookie dough. Make sure not to over mix because we want white and blue frosting.

  11. You can either pipe the frosting on like I did using a Wilton 1 M piping tip and piping bag or just frost each cookie with a knife and a big spoonful of frosting.

  12. Then place a lindor truffle and a chocolate covered blueberry on each cookie to look like the head and body of the spider.

  13. In a microwave safe bowl, melt y our chocolate chips. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until chocolate is melted. Using either a piping bag with a small writing tip or just a ziploc with the corner cut off (just a tiny but of the corner, you don’t want a big whole). Pipe on the legs of the spider using the melted chocolate.

  14. Enjoy!
