Reduced Sugar Recipe for Halloween Cookies - Peanut Butter Cup Spider Cookies


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener, baking soda and salt together.
  3. Add in the peanut butter and milk, fold together until well combined.
  4. Using two tablespoons of dough per cookie, place the cookies on the prepared pan. Gently press down a peanut butter cup in the center of each cookie to create a little well in the center. Remove the peanut cups until after baking.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  6. While still warm, add the peanut butter cups into the center of each cookie. Cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, use the melted chocolate to pipe 4 'legs' on each side of the peanut butter cup. Adhere the candy eyes with a bit more chocolate.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
