A little creepy and gross, but really fun to make, those Halloween finger cookies are actually delicious and great for spooky decorations for your Halloween party.
Inspired by The Baking Pan

  • 30 g Blanched almonds, finely ground
  • 170 g All-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 g Unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 80 g Granulated sugar
  • 40 g Powdered sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Almond extract
  • Some blanched almond halves
  • Strawberry jam
http://schneiderchen.de | © 2011 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com
  1. Whisk together the ground almonds, flour, and salt in a bowl. Set aside. Beat the butter, and sugars until well mixed. Add in egg, almond extract and beat until blended. Sift in the flour mixture and stir until mixed.
  2. Wrap the dough with plastic film and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight. Prepare 2 large baking trays and line with baking paper. Remove the dough and roll teaspoons of dough into a finger shape. Place a blanched almond half into one end of the cookie to form a nail and squeeze in the center of the dough create a knuckle shape. Use a small knife to cut a few small ridges in the knuckles. Place them back to the fridge to chill 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Remove the cookies from the fridge and bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Lift up the almond half, put a little bit of the strawberry jam around the edges of the nail base, and press the almond half back into place, so the jam oozes out from around the edges. Place them on a wire rack to cool.

Hi angie, you have plenty of excellent ideas on what to make and
you sure excel in the making of ”state of the art” delicious cookies..

Wonder how you felt when you were shaping them up.. When you were arranging the chopped off fingers as in image # 1, did you feel creepy like someone is watching you. ha ha ha

Cookies usually flattens so keep them in the refrigerator until cooking. Chocolate from all over the nail does not go out, so I painted the fingernails of chocolate instead Almonds bleaching has taken most of the time.

Angie-I've been having technical problems for the last few days...not being able to comment with Google. I had to work on my blog from my son's house, and could not spend so much time with commenting.
Your amazing Halloween creepy creation is oh, so "scary" real...in spite of how delicious it tastes. Would not dare to eat the "yummy scary almond nails"..ha, ha, but so much fun!
You're just too much...LOL
