Honey Spritz Cookies for Halloween (or Any Day)-and a bloggy blooper

I pulled the page for these Honey Spritz Cookies out of the December 2012 edition of Food Network Magazine. It took a while, but I knew I'd get around to trying the recipe! Buttery with a hint of honey, they stuck nicely to the cookie sheet, and as you'll see below they did really hold their shape well for pressed cookies. This is a nice little recipe to tuck away for a cool fall baking day:@)

I found the spider sprinkles leftover and marked down after Halloween at Walmart last year. So for pennies I have a cute little ~easily decorated~ cookie for Halloween:@) And of course this recipe would be great any time of year using a different disc. Ya gotta love spritz folks!!!

My Bloggy Blooper: Now, I may be the only person in the world that didn't know this but, these little candy sprinkles can't be baked... Nope, they can't. I added the spiders to all of my cookies that had the most detail and really showed the spider web design well... And the spiders ~a la Wicked Witch of the West~ melted-huh??? So they are best sprinkled on cupcakes or you can stick them onto the cookies after baking with a dab of icing or melted chocolate.

The spider web is part of Oxo's Fall Cookie Discs, love all of the cute shapes... 
Look at that turkey:@)

Other Fall and Halloween Options can be found at Impress Bakeware, lovin' the cat!
And ghost... and jack-o-lantern... Too fun!

  1. Cute cookies and too bad about the melted spider. Even more creepy :)

  2. Love the spider web cookies, Lynn! I had to chuckle at the melted spider and your bloggy blooper. Thanks for the tip about not baking the decorations. I love that you kept it real for us!!

  3. These sound great. I am all in with spritz cookies. Nothing is easier and I would think the honey would change the taste a good bit. Thank you for posting this.

  4. Haha, I would have baked them too! They are so adorable! I haven't made Spritz in a long time, but they were always just magical to me!

  5. Yum. I have baked those candies also... they flatten right into little gops. I need to try this recipe

  6. Cute spider cookies Lynn, and I've made that mistake before with the candies. I love that witch hat!

  7. Well Lynn, we all learn together, I would have done the same thing. The cookies are so cute! Hope you have a great weekend and thanks so much for sharing your post with us at Full Plate Thursday!
