Expert Tips for Chocolate Chip Spider Cookies:
The combination of butter and crisco is my favorite! Butter is better for flavor, but the crisco helps keep the cookies light and fluffy.
Make Halloween chocolate chip cookies with different types of chocolate chips. Try chunks, white chocolate, dark chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter. 
Make sure the cookies are completely cooled before piping the legs. 
Use a toothpick or extra small piping bag to get the lines for the spider legs precise. 
Cool completely before moving. 
Use sea salt for best flavor
