- 100 grams butter (cut into pieces)
- 250 grams flour
- baking powder
- 1 salt
- 1 medium egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 100 grams powdered sugar (or granulated sugar)
- almonds (whole and peeled)
- red food coloring
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Place the flour, cold butter, egg, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and baking powder in a large bowl.
- Knead all the ingredients into a ball, then continue to knead the dough on a work surface until it is smooth and uniform in consistency.
- Shape the cookie dough into logs, divide the logs into pieces weighing approximately 25 grams each.
- Work each piece in the palm of your hands into a strip approximately 8 to 10 centimeters long.
- Shape the knuckles of the fingers by thinning out the dough right above and below the knuckle, use a sharp knife to score the knuckle.
- Place some jam on one end and stick an almond sliver to it so that it adheres to the cookie. Press lightly on the almond: this is the nail.
- Brush the other end of the cookie with some red food coloring so it looks like blood from a finger which has been cut off.
- Place all the cookies on a wax paper-lined baking sheet, approximately 3 centimeters apart.
- Bake the cookies for approximately 20 minutes.
- Let the cookies cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet.
