If you are into scary sweets for Halloween, you're in luck: These "finger foods" will satisfy your love of gore quite nicely. The cookies are made by rolling pieces of dough into ropes and then cutting into finger-size lengths, and a toothpick is used to make the joint markings before one end of the dough is pressed for the nail, which is fashioned out of an almond attached by a bit of jam "glue." For the spiderweb cookies, you simply pipe melted chocolate in lines radiating out from the center and then the circlular threads that connect them.

Ingredients

  • 400 grams all purpose flour
  • 50 grams vanilla sugar
  • 80 grams powdered sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla pod (seeds only)
  • 250 grams unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  • cocoa
  • blackberry jam
  • almond flakes
  • milk chocolate

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine the sugars, and grind to a powder.
  2. Add the butter, egg, vanilla, flour, and a pinch salt. Blend to a sandy texture.
  3. Remove, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 360°F.
  5. Roll the dough into a log, not too thick, and cut into 4 centimeter long pieces.
  6. Using a toothpick, make two stripes on each to look like a knuckle. Using the tip of your finger or the handle of a spoon, press on the ends of each to form a fingernail. Put a little bit of blackberry jam and the almond on top of the nail indent.
  7. Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 15 minutes. Carefully remove and cool on a cooling rack.
  8. Once cooled, use a brush to brush cocoa powder around the area around the "nails".
  9. Place the dough on a working surface and cover with plastic wrap. Gently roll out the hand and cut with a round cutter.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes.
  11. Once cooled, melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir to melt the chocolate. If necessary, place in the microwave for 30 more seconds.
  12. Pour the melted chocolate into a pastry bag and draw a spider web on each finger.
