    12. 12
      *If you want the spider's legs to point/bend up in the middle, just place a small ball of foil under center of each leg during rising and baking! :).

      I made this for Halloween and am just now getting around to reviewing it. It was a huge hit at our party and very easy to make. The only problem I had was the legs stuck to the foil balls. Next time I'm make sure the foil is nice and greasy before baking.
