If you need a last minute Halloween cookie idea, remember I made these sparkly, dangling spider ornament cookies featured in the Fall Issue of Bird’s Magazine, pp. 61 – 62.

How to make sparkly spider ornament cookies:
Roll out your favorite sugar cookie dough and cut out little spiders. Use a toothpick to make a hole at the top of the cookie about ¼-inch in diameter. Bake and let cool.
Mix up a batch of royal icing, divide and tint in festive colors, such as black, orange, green or purple.
Prepare decorating bags with size “4” decorating tips, and pipe icing to fill the spider, then immediately coat the icing with a matching color of sprinkles. Let the cookies dry, preferably overnight, and thread baker’s twine through the hole.
