Spiderman cookies and cookie favors

More cookies on my cookie making odyssey.  These are Spiderman cookies, and cookie favors that I made for a little boys birthday party.  I am really happy about how they turned out, even if the black icing gave me fits.  I have to give credit where credit is due, my go-to cookie resource blog, the Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle. She is very talented, and has been an outstanding resource for me, I really should think of thanking her for her awesome tutorials.

Winner winner, chicken dinner! UPDATED.

I am very excited to announce that my Chocolate Cherry Beauties cookie recipe won a blue ribbon from the Just a Pinch Recipe Club!  I am thinking I should take the time out to say that before I posted a recipe there I was using it like crazy for different cake recipes.  It was always popping up in my sidebar on Facebook with delicious creations that made me click.  So what did we learn today?  That I am a baking nerd, and that the Just a Pinch Recipe Club is a great website and resource.  Still haven't heard anything about my entry to the cookie contest, but I am keeping my fingers crossed!

UPDATE: The cookies were a finalist in the Just a Pinch Cookie Celebration contest, and was featured on the front page of the site during the week of July 10th, as well as featuring them in their Facebook ads..  They made me an Honorary Kitchen Member and sent me a Chefs hat.   So now I can ca call these cookies "Award Winning"!!! Woo Hoo!
