Creepy Crawly Cookies
adapted from cooking classy.
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon cornflour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 115 grams chilled butter, diced into cubes
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 2 1/2 tablespoons powdered coffee creamer
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 15 brown M&Ms
- 1/2 bar of dark chocolate
- Round piping tip (I used Wilton tip 4)
- Piping bag
Step 1: Preheat oven to 160 degree Celcius fan forced. In a mixing bowl mix together flour, cornflour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Step 2: In another mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, mix together chilled butter, sugar, honey and coffee creamer until blended. Add in egg and vanilla extract.
Step 3: Slowly add your dry ingredients until completely combined. Roll spoonfuls of cookie dough (about 1.5 tablespoons) into balls and place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. Lightly flatten the cookies and place one M&M in the centre. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly golden just around the edge of the cookie.
Step 4: Allow cookies to cool. Over a bain marie melt the dark chocolate. Leave to cool (but not harden) for 10-15 minutes. Once cooled, fill the piping bag with the dark chocolate and pipe a small ball next to the M&M, which will be the spider's head. Next pipe eight lines (four on either side) of the M&M, which will be the spiders legs. Place cookies in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened.
Serve with a cold glass of milk and enjoy the creepy crawlies.
Happy Trick or Treating!
