It’s scary how simple it is to make these cobweb Halloween cookies. With only a few pantry ingredients, they’re so tasty and fun!
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!
Ingredients for these Halloween Cookies
- All purpose flour
- Granulated sugar
- Powdered sugar

How To Make Cobweb Halloween Cookies
These cookies are super easy to make! (Scroll down for the detailed printable recipe.)
- 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.
Important Recipe Tips
- 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.
