Along with the cobweb cookies, I tried my hands on other food monster art with the help of the same squeeze┬ábottle & skull,bones are the result of that only :)! I have loaded my pantry with lots of candy’s for all of them along with these cobweb cookies. I adapted this recipe from Vijitha’s blog and it has come as a super saviour for me because I am in my no cooking lazy zone these days and was looking for something that is easy and quick.

  4. Squeeze the batter to form 4 straight, thin lines (mine are not so thin) that intersect at a common center point to form a star shape.
  5. Now to form a cobweb you need to squeeze thin streams of batter to connect all the straight lines.
  6. Cook the cobweb cookie until golden brown or 30 - 50 seconds turning them carefully.
  7. Remove from skillet gently and allow cooling on wire rack.
  8. Finally heat the oven to 180??C and bake the cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 5 - 7 minutes or until almost crisp and crunchy.
  9. Cookies will become crisp on cooling.

  11. Lastly sprinkle the cookies with powdered sugar.
