Spider-Man Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

I knew that I’d get a few puppy faces in exchange for this recipe. I am a sucker for smiley and puppy faces. So, here is the recipe. 
As I mentioned in the previous post, this was one of the fun foods I made for our family movie night (link is here if you want to read about it). We were watching the new Spider-Man movie so I made themed snacks.
These cookies turned out so good. Actually, they were even better the next day, after they got a change to set in. The red velvet cookie is perfect with the coconut cream cheese frosting.

(adopted from Feb. issue of Food Magazine)
1 cup of flour
1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder (I prefer Ghirardelli)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
6 tbs unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup powder sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp red food coloring

3/4 cup of sweet coconut flakes
4 oz of cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup of powder sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of blue food coloring

Buttercream frosting for topping

1. Sift the baking soda, salt, powder sugar, flour and cocoa powder together.
2. Beat soft butter, powder sugar and vanilla together, on medium speed, for 1-2 minutes until light.
3. Reduce speed to low and mix in the flour mixture. Add the food coloring and mix until all combined.
4. Take out the dough and roll it in a log. Wrap the dough in the saran wrap and put it in the freezer for about an hour. (Transfer into the fridge if you are not ready to bake yet)

5. To make the filling: combine the cream cheese, coconut, vanilla, powder sugar and food coloring in a food processor or a blender. Blend until all combined. (keep it in the fridge until ready to use).
~Preheat the oven to 350. Cover the cookie sheet with parchment paper and grease lightly.
6. Cut the cookie dough into 1/4 inch rounds. Lay out the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet.
7. Bake the cookies for about 8-9 minutes.
8. When the cookies are completely cooled down, spread about a tablespoon of filling in between the two cookies.
9. Use the buttercream frosting to top the cookies with a spider web.

  14. Ive been trying to make these cute cookies all morning! The dough has been really crumbly. I was wondering if a step or ingredient was left out? How many cookies does your recipe make?

    • Hi Tina. The dough is a little crumbly because of the type of cookie. That’s why it’s important to chill the cookie dough. Also use the sharpest knife you have. You can press the cracks in the dough lightly together with your fingers. If you notice in the picture, it did crumble a little while I was cutting it. I just gently pressed the circles before baking. Hope everything works out! Good luck, let me know if you have any more questions :)
