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.
