Something strange happened today. A plate of perfectly innocuous Banoffee Nutella Sandwich Cookies …
… turned into this …
Spooky Spider Sandwich Cookies
8 oz plain flour
6 oz light muscovado sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
4 1/2 oz mashed banana (1 medium/large ripe banana)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking tray with parchment.
Mix all the ingredients together. The dough will be very sticky. Cover the bowl it’s in with clingfilm and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Scrape out the dough onto a well-floured surface. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into circles with a 2 1/4 inch diameter cutter.
Transfer the circles to a parchment-lined baking tray. The cookies puff but don’t spread much, so it’s okay to put 10 to 15 cookies on a tray (assuming your trays are the same size as mine, ha!)
Bake for 7 mins, then remove to a wire rack to cool.
Eat if you dare …
