Once the cookies are cooled it is time to ice them!

To make the icing you will need to sieve the icing sugar into a bowl then add the water. If the icing is too dry or too thick add a bit more water.

Once you have made the icing put a bit aside in a bowl, food colour that icing.


Step 7:

You will need to make a piping bag, to do this get a glad bag and cut a small piece off the corner of the bag.
If you want a thick web cut the hole a bit bigger (this will require more icing).

Step 8:

Now comes the fun part! fill your piping bag with the coloured icing then close the top. 

With your iced cookies pipe a spiral around them using your piping bag then get a skewer/stake and, starting from the middle pull the icing out towards the edges. You can do this as many times as you like.

Now you have your lovely spider web chocolate chip cookies. Enjoy eating them!
