  • Add egg and vanilla extract and mix till fluffy.
  • Add the sieved all purpose flour mixture in 2 batches, mixing only till incorporated.
  • Roll the cookie dough in plastic wrap and place in fridge for 2- 3 hours, so the cookie does not spread while baking.

Step 2: Blanching Almonds(To Depict Nails)

Ingredients Required :

  • Raw Almonds - 14
  • Hot water - 1 cup

Steps to blanch the almonds :

  • Put the raw almonds in hot water for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, strain the water and spray the almonds with cold water.
  • The skins will peel off easily.

Step 3: Shaping and Presenting Severed Fingers

Ingredients required for Shaping and Presenting Severed fingers :

  • Cookies
  • Blanched Almonds
  • Stawberry Jam
  • Large Knife
  • Freddy Krueger statue

Procedure :

  • Once the cookie dough is chilled for 2-3 hours, take a small piece of the dough and roll it between both the palms to get the shape and length of a finger, place one blanched almond to replicate finger nail and make some cuts on the cookie to depict lines on a finger. Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.

  • Place the shaped fingers on a baking tray and bake for 375F for 8 - 9 minutes.

  • Cool the fingers completely.

  • Remove the almonds from the baked fingers and place a dot of strawberry jam where the almond were placed and place the almonds back on the finger tip and press lightly. This will replicate a bloody finger nail.

  • Then place little jam on the edges of the fingers and also on the sharp end of a knife to depict that fingers were cut with the knife by Freddy Krueger :)
