Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

Spooky, Halloween cookies!

Yield: 64 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Additional granulated sugar
  • 64 (19.5 oz.) miniature peanut butter cups
    • I also used bite-sized butterfingers on half my cookies
  • Melted chocolate chips
    • I used some leftover chocolate ganache from another project.

Directions

  1. Cream together the sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter, and eggs.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Mix together.
  3. Roll into 1-inch balls.  Roll in granulated sugar and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 8-9 minutes.
  5. Press an unwrapped miniature peanut butter cup (upside-down) into each cup while it's still warm from the oven.  Cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. Use the melted chocolate to pipe 8 legs onto each spider cookie.
