Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheet.
  2. In a saucepan melt chocolate over low heat. Let cool.
  3. In a small bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. In a medium bowl beat margarine on low speed until smooth. Add sugar and beat until creamy. Stir in egg, vanilla and chocolate. Add flour mixture and mix well, forming a stiff dough.
  5. To make spider, shape a 2 inch flat oval for the body. Make the spider's head by flattening a circle about 1/2 inch wide. Shape dough for legs each about 2 inches long and less than 1/4 inch wide.
  6. Attach the head and legs to body. Put two red candies into head for eyes. Bake for 5-8 minutes. Let spiders cool on baking sheet to avoid breaking when moving.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was a disappointing recipe. The dough was very crumbly; I had to press it together with my hands before I could form it into spiders. Of course, this made the actual shaping of the cookies very difficult! I ended up only making four because it was so hard, and putting the leftover dough (or should I say crumbles?) into the fridge for my family to eat. The spiders themselves, once baked, were pretty cute, but they were very hard and brittle. Several legs broke off in the process of moving the spiders, even though I let them cool as the recipe suggested. A few of the legs burned before the rest of the cookie was baked, as well. My siblings said they tasted okay, but not great. Sorry, but I will not be making these again!

The heads and legs of these spiders fell off after baking. The cookies were tasty.
