These creepy cookies look like spindly fingers but thankfully taste like shortbread. Use raw pumpkin seeds for gross green fingernails.
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Butter
1 egg egg
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2 3/4 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Raw pumpkin seeds
Mix butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla until completely combined.
Combine dry ingredients in a seperate bowl (except pumpkin seeds) and combine with butter mixture.
Refrigerate dough for at least a half hour.*
When you are ready to make the cookies, preheat oven to Grease a cookie sheet.
Form dough into thin rolls.
They don't have to be even - crooked fingers are creepy.
Mine are about 1/3 inch wide and 3 inches long, but you could make them thicker and/or longer.
Don't flatten them too much, though.
Press a pumpkin seed into one end of the cookie.
I like to press mine horizontally towards the other end a bit so it sticks well and sinks into the nail bed like a real nail.
If you wish, you can either press a fork across the finger to create knuckles, or press the tines of the fork into the finger to create little holes.
If yours are as thin as mine (1/3 inch), bake for about 10 minutes or until just slightly browned.
If yours are a lot thicker, bake up to 20 minutes.
* If you want to make these in advance, leave in the fridge, covered, for up to a few of days.
The dough will dry out a bit but is fine after a bit of handling..
