By now you have probably figured out, I am a little obsessed with Halloween Party food. This Spider Web Cookie Pizza with Pumpkin Spice Frosting is such a fun treat though. It would make a fantastic spider dessert display along with Spider Cake Balls I put up a few days ago.
Making Spider Web Cookie Pizza with Pumpkin Spice Frosting
Here is a quick visual guide to making this Halloween cookie pizza. Full recipe below.
First you will press cookie dough onto pizza pan and bake.
Then make the easy pumpkin spice frosting, and cover cookie once cool.
Drag a toothpick across from center to create spider web effect on the cookie.
- 1 tube sugar cookie dough 16.5 oz
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons butter softened
- 4 oz. cream cheese softened
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- 3-4 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Coat a round pizza pan with cooking spray. Press the cookie dough evenly onto the pan. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Then, allow to cool completely before frosting
Beat together butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in pumpkin, and then slowly mix in powdered sugar. For a thicker frosting, use 4 cups. Mix in pumpkin pie spice and vanilla.
Add chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl. Zap for 30 seconds,then whisk until smooth. If needed, heat for an additional 10-15 seconds.
Spread frosting over the top of the cooled cookie pizza. Place chocolate ganache into a sandwich bag and cut off a small corner. Pipe circles around the cookie pizza, approximately ½ inch apart until you reach the center.
To create the spider web, use a toothpick and starting at the center, pull the toothpick through the frosting to the outer edge. Repeat at desired intervals around the cookie.
Chill until the frosting hardens slightly. Cut into slices and serve.
If you don’t want to use pumpkin frosting, you may use vanilla frosting and tint it orange with food coloring.
