      RECIPE TITLE "Chocolate Spiderweb Cookies Recipe"

    yields2 dozen cookies (serving size: 1 cookie) time---difficultyeasy

    For the Halloween party, try something completely new for the kids, like chocolate cookies decorated with icing spiderwebs!  These cookies look as if a spider had spun her web onto the tops, a feat that is easily accomplished with some powdered sugar, milk and a plastic bag that acts as a pastry bag. The white icing is piped on the top of the chocolaty cookie then fashioned into an eerie web.

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup vegetable shortening
    2/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 large egg white
    Cooking spray
    2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
    3 tablespoons 2% reduced-fat milk

      RECIPE METHOD

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Place shortening in a large mixing bowl; beat with a heavy-duty mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until well blended. Add vanilla and egg white; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat until well blended.

    Turn dough out onto wax paper; shape into a 6-inch log. Wrap log in wax paper. Freeze 2 hours or until very firm.

    Cut log into 24 (1/4-inch) slices, and place slices 1 inch apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes or until set. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

    Combine powdered sugar and milk in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk until smooth. Spoon into a small zip-top plastic bag; seal. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag. Working with 1 cookie at a time, pipe 3 concentric circles onto each cookie. Starting at center circle, pull a wooden pick through other circles at regular intervals to create a "web."

    TIP:
    For the glaze, snip a very small hole in the corner of the plastic bag. If it's too small, you can always make it bigger.
