Make the cutest Halloween Spider Cookies, and give the peanut butter cookie recipe a try too! This recipe has been in Holly's family for decades, originally created by her great grandmother, and you will LOVE it! 

Learn how to use Master Elites in cookie dough, Master Elite Black to color CHOCOLATE and Edible Luster Dust to dazzle up some peanut butter cups! This cookie design is so simple and fun, it would be a great Halloween activity for kids! 

Master Elites are highly-pigmented food colors that are activated by moisture, so the egg inside of the cookie dough recipe activated Orange Master Elite perfectly! We love how vibrant the color turned out, even with that "peanut butter brown" tone on the cookies! The orange still managed to be the star!

Now, Master Elites cannot color chocolate - with the exception of Black and White! Black and White Master Elites are fat soluble, but no other colors from this collection are. Master Elites color any type of icing, dough, fondant, macaron batter, cake batter ... basically anything but chocolate! :)
