Introduction: Disturbingly Creepy Finger Cookies

A favorite vegan Halloween treat that will creep out even those who know they are fake...

Step 1:

Ingredients

1/2 c vegan margarine
1/4c brown sugar or sucanat
1/2 tsp pure vanilla. almond or lemon extract
1-1/4c unbleached , spelt, or whole wheat pastry flour + extra for rolling
1/4 c whole blanched almonds
Red jam or jelly, such as raspberry or strawberry
water, as needed

Step 2:

Preheat oven to 325 ̊F. With a fork or electric mixer, cream margarine, brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until fluffy. Slowly add flour until dough becomes too stiff to mix with the mixer/ fork. Mix with your hands until all the flour is incorporated. If the dough is too dry to hold its shape, add a little bit of water.

Step 3:

Shape the cookies into creepy fingers by rolling the dough and using a knife to make knuckles. To make the fingers especially creepy, cut the finger in half and spread just enough jam inside to be able to seal it up again without having it ooze out. Once sealed, at the tip of the finger

Step 4:

insert a blanched (skinned) almond to look like a fingernail.

Step 5:

Place on a cookie sheet and bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
