Fun Halloween Cookies
Let’s talk about these cobweb Halloween cookies! I love them so much. The bright white helps take away some of the creepy factor, while still remaining on point for any Halloween party.
The batter is sort of like pancakes, but the sugar makes them sweet and they do crisp up like cookies as they cool. They taste like mini funnel cakes!
What You’ll Need
You only need a handful of pantry staples to makes these spider web cookies.
(Scroll below to the printable recipe card for details and measurements.)
- All purpose flour
- Granulated sugar
- Powdered sugar
- Vegetable oil
- Whole milk
How To Make Cobweb Halloween Cookies
These cookies are super easy to make!
(For all the details, scroll below to the complete printable recipe card.)
- You’ll beat all the ingredients (except the powdered sugar) together with a hand held mixer.
- Transfer the mixture to a plastic squeeze bottle.
- Squeeze batter onto a hot griddle forming a spiderweb.
- Cook for 30 seconds until golden brown; carefully flip and cook for another 30 seconds.
- Bake for about 5 minutes in a 325 degree F oven until almost crisp.
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Tips for Success
- A squeeze bottle with a very narrow opening is recommended to make these. If you don’t have one, you can find plastic picnic-style bottles for ketchup at your grocery or discount store. You can also use a plastic bag and cut off a very small portion of the tip.
- Don’t get heavy-handed when you squirt the batter out – it will spread a little as it cooks and if you use too much, the web will become one big circle blob.
- Use a griddle instead of a fry pan to cook these, so you can make several at one time.
- These are a little tricky to make at first, so plan on a few test ones to get the hang of pouring the batter. Then it’s a breeze.
- Once cooked, the cookies are delicate and can break easily if you’re not gentle with them. The good news is, spiderwebs are not perfect, so these don’t need to be either!
How to Store Cobweb Cookies
These are best enjoyed immediately, but you can store them in a container with a loose-fitting lid for up to 2 days.

Now that’s creative!
I love these!
I totally hate spiders and, as previously discussed, most things halloween-related, but these are totally cute! (That was supposed to be a compliment. Didn’t sound like one, did it? Let’s try that again.)
Whoa, Mommy! Spiderweb cookies! Cute!!!
PS – The fact that they could resemble snowflakes is TOTALLY a good thing. Because if you get busy around Christmas and forget to do a post, you just photoshop in an elf (or a dreidel, for Hannukah) over the spider and BAM! You’ve got yourself a December post. ;-)
Hahahaha. No offense taken. I hate spiders, too! Even the tiniest ones turn me into a screaming 7 year old. Powdered sugar makes me do crazy things. I like your December idea – a 2 for 1 deal. Brilliant!
Oh Hun, I gave up trying to compete with Martha a long time. ago. My pie crusts never look amazing, my cake decorating is minimalistic at best, and my cookies never come out the same size. RUSTIC! That’s what I call most my stuff, lol. You should be proud of those spiderwebs. I would have destroyed them!
I was Minnie Mouse when I was in second grade! Haley must take after me in the costume department. :P
I think these totally look like spiderwebs. And you have far more patience than I.
These cookies are adorable! This gives me a great idea for making spooky pancakes too ;)
I’m beyond impressed. I thought you had used a cookie cutter. They look absolutely beautiful…and crispy-delicious too.
You’re so sweet, thank you! As mine weren’t coming out perfectly like Betty Crocker, I said to Paul, “I bet they pay money to have a special mold made!”
These look really neat and shouldn’t be too hard to make. I may actually try my hand at it.
How frighteningly fragile and terrifyingly tasty looking! I’ll be you’ll catch a whole bunch of kiddies with these webs.
Gosh, remember those days of trick or treating when we got homemade popcorn balls and cookies? Could never get away with that today.
Wow these cookies are multi-funtional ~ They can also be “snowflake” cookies in the winter! Thank you!
Yes, I intended it that way *cough* Riiiight. HA.
These are so cute! I want to throw a party just so I can make these! … Maybe I will just make them and keep them for myself!
My kids are the perfect excuse for me to make stuff like this!
