SITS Halloween Party Day 2!

Today is day 2 of the SITS Halloween Party! Yesterday was all about favorite Halloween memories and today is all about Halloween Crafts. Now, I don't claim to be a crafty person, but I love to bake and that's where I get "crafty". I found this great recipe on Nick Jr. for pumpkin cookies that look like spiderwebs.

Cute right? Minus the fact that I forgot to get a piping tip for the black frosting so I had to free hand it.

Here's the recipe:

You need:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • Black frosting tubes
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • toothpicks

What to do:
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Measure the baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a bowl
  • With a big spoon, cream the shortening, sugar, and pumpkin purée in a separate bowl. Add the egg and mix it in
  • Sift in the dry ingredients and mix everything thoroughly with the spoon
  • Drop heaping spoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes
  • When cooled, ice cookies with frosting.
  • Use the black frosting tubes to draw concentric circles on each.
  • Use a toothpick to pull the black frosting out from the center (like spokes of a wheel)

Be sure to head over to SITS today to see all of the other crafts and play along with the Halloween party!
