I have had this recipe on the back burner for months. So long that I was sure I would forget to share it in October and be forced to hold on to it for another year. Luckily, when I was planning out Recipe Club for the second half of 2016, I plugged this in for October, assuring I would not forget.
Halloween has never been my favorite holiday, but I want that to change. I am pretty sure working on Giada’s Holiday Handbook (the first episode airs Sunday!) has me excited for every single holiday. And convinced I need to up my pillow game by about 100.
My seasonal cooking tends to be more about fall dishes, than Halloween based dishes. I thought these Spiderweb Florentines were the perfect first try at a Halloween inspired dish . These cookies are delicate, beautiful, and tasty even without the addition of chocolate. And as delicate and complicated as they look, they are the opposite to make; easy, low ingredient count, and just a few simple steps.
This recipe is best made the day of, but the dough can be made a couple days ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Just be sure to bring it to room temperature before cooking. I would also recommend using milk chocolate as opposed to dark. Milk chocolate allows the webs to pop on the dark cookies.
These spider webs are also are great for all age ranges, perfect for a children’s Halloween party, but also fun for an adult gathering.
