How to Make Wednesday & Enid Window Cookies

Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C), and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a stand mixer bowl, add ½ cup of the softened unsalted butter and the sugar.

Cream the mixture until light in color and fluffy using the whisk attachment. Incorporate the vanilla extract and egg, mixing until well combined.

Replace the whisk attachment with the paddle attachment. Add the flour to the mixture and mix until the dough is cohesive and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Create Wednesday’s Side: Divide the dough into two equal portions. To one half, add the cocoa powder and the remaining ¼ cup of softened butter.

Mix using the paddle attachment until smooth. Set aside.

Create Enid’s Side: Take the remaining half of the dough and divide it into three equal portions. Add a few drops of pink, yellow, and blue food coloring to each portion.

Gently knead the colors into the dough, aiming for a streaked, stained-glass appearance. Do not fully incorporate the colors.

Assemble the Cookies: Roll each colored portion into a log and line them up side by side. Shape the chocolate dough into a similar-sized log and press it next to the colored logs.

Using a sharp knife, slice 1/4-inch rounds from the cookie dough log.

Reshape each round into a more circular shape, if needed, and place it on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes, or until the edges are set and slightly browned. Allow cookies to cool completely.

Decorate with Spider Web: Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir well. Heat for another 30 seconds and stir again until fully melted.

Transfer the melted chocolate to a piping bag fitted with a small tip or cut a small hole at the end.

Pipe a circle of chocolate around the edge of each cookie. Divide the cookie in half with a line of chocolate, separating the two sides. Add two more lines to divide the cookie into six sections. Complete the spider web design by connecting the lines with curved lines. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.
