Halloween fingers from Stephy

November 3, 2008

We had a great Halloween night at Steph’s place on the 31st, and the food was awesome too. Among the halloween themed lollies, we had zombie fingers and cheese and pineapple stick things and these really nice chocolate coffee drops (which unfortunately I only tried toward the end of the night). Steph was nice enough to share the recipe (I’m not sure where it originated from, so sorry to the original authors that there’s no credit). It might be a bit late, but hey. They’re so much fun, you could make them for anything!

Zombie fingers

1 1/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup butter (230g)
1/2cup crushed nuts (I used walnuts)
1tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla essence
pinch salt
1 egg
1egg yolk
green food colour (Steph used a bit of yellow instead)
whole almonds

cream sugar and butter till light and fluffy
beat in egg and egg yolk
mix in food colour, vanilla essence and nuts
mix in dry ingrediants dont over mix
roll dough into fingers lightly tapperd an one end add almonds as the finger nail at tapperd end, pich in for a knuckle
place fingers on a greased try or greased cooking paper on tray
preheat oven 150-200 degrees
cook for 10-15mins or until slightly golden ontop

for the blood i mixed up red food coulour icing sugar and vanilla essence :)

have fun I hope they work out for you :)

Note: I didn’t count how many this recipe made, but there was a large (bigger than a dinner plate) plate’s worth.
