Halloween Freaky Finger Cookies

Halloween Freaky Finger Cookies ... These finger-shaped cookies makes a great fun treat for kids on Halloween!

Halloween Freaky Finger Cookies

Makes : 20 cookies

Ingredients :
  • 100 gm.  caster sugar
  • 100 gm.  butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 200 gm.  plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp.  vanilla essence
  • Salt, a pinch
  • 10 whole almonds, halved lengthwise
  • Chocolate, melted ( optional )

Method :
  • Combine caster sugar, butter, egg yolk, plain flour, vanilla essence and salt in a food processor and pulse just until a dough forms.
  • Transfer dough to a bowl and divide into quarters. Work with one portion of dough at a time, keeping the remaining dough covered with plastic wrap.
  • Divide first portion of dough into 5 equal pieces. On a work surface, roll each piece back and forth with your fingers into a thin rope or cylinder ( about 3 to to 4 inches long ) .
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, a little apart as they will spread during baking. Use a knife to make a few cuts, close together, for the knuckles.
  • Place an almond halve at the end of each finger ( I used egg white on the edge of cookies to stick the almonds ), press the almond slightly into the cookie and trim away excess pastry around the edge to neaten. 
  • Repeat this process with remaining dough, place the shaped cookies in the fridge for 30 minutes. 
  • Preheat oven to 180C / 160F / Gas 4. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes; just until firm. 
  • Leave to cool on wire rack, then store in an air-tight container.
  • Instead of almonds, dip cookies in melted chocolate after baking & cooling; if you like.
