Zombie Finger Snacks

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
  1. 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.
  2. They don't have to be even - crooked fingers are creepy.
  3. Mine are about 1/3 inch wide and 3 inches long, but you could make them thicker and/or longer.
  4. Don't flatten them too much, though. Press a pumpkin seed into one end of the cookie.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. The dough will dry out a bit but is fine after a bit of handling..
