Scary Spiderweb Buns Recipe

Scary Spiderweb Buns Recipe
Scary Spiderweb Buns are perfect for sandwiches at Halloween time. They can be used for simple quick sandwiches with deli meats, or for sloppy Joe-type sandwiches at the annual Halloween BOO-ffet. Since the dough is made in the automatic bread machine, hands-on time is minimal. Spiderweb cookie cutters are easy to find, and once the buns are shaped and cut, a simple paste of flour and water is piped on to make them look like spiderwebs.
If you can’t find a cookie cutter, you can easily make a paper stencil and cut around the dough; it won’t be as fast, but will still make cute spiderweb buns. If you don’t have a decorating bag, the paste can be piped out of the corner of a sandwich bag, so nothing special is really needed.

16 3-4” Buns

1 1/2 cups warm water
1/4 cup powdered milk
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 egg
1 cup 10-grain cereal
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon yeast

1/4 cup water
3 to 4 tablespoons flour
  1. Place the ingredients for the dough in the order given into the pan of an automatic bread machine.
  2. Turn the bread machine to the dough setting. Check after a few minutes to make sure that the ingredients have formed a soft ball. If the ball is too stiff, add more liquid; if the ball is very soft and doesn't hold its shape, add more flour. Start the cycle again.
  3. When the cycle is finished, transfer the dough to a lightly floured pastry cloth.
  4. Roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness.
  5. Using a spiderweb cookie cutter or stencil, cut the dough into 16 buns.
  6. Place them on parchment-lined baking sheets.

  8. Mix the glaze ingredients until smooth; transfer to a decorating bag with a small round tip or a baggie with a small hole cut from the corner.
  9. Pipe concentric circles in the center of the webs.
  10. Using a skewer, draw a line through the circles from the centers to the edges to resemble spiderwebs.
  11. Let the spiderwebs rise until double, then bake at 350° until lightly browned.
