Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Edible glitter
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips, melted
  • Milk chocolate M&M's
  • Orange nonpareils

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar. Beat in egg and orange peel. Gradually add flour; mix well.
Transfer dough to a pastry bag fitted with a large round pastry tip. Pipe spiderwebs (about 4 in. high and 4 in. wide) onto foil-lined baking sheets. With a pastry brush, gently brush each web with water. Lightly sprinkle with edible glitter.
Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until set but not browned. Let cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
Fill a small resealable plastic bag with the melted chocolate; cut a small hole in the corner of bag. For spiders, attach two or three M&M's on each web with melted chocolate; pipe spider legs around each. For spider eyes, attach nonpareils with melted chocolate. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
