Frank's Fingers.....


I had this posted on my blog from last Halloween and thought I'd share it with you all here. These cookies are soooooo cute AND they taste great!


6 tablespoons softened butter
6 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 beaten egg yolk (important)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
candied cherries

Cream butter and sugar, add egg yolk, vanilla and flour and mix will.
prep the pan with either parchment or spray oil. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

For monster fingers:

add a couple drops of green food coloring into the dough. Then, using a smaller amount of the dough, form it into a cigarette shape. Then sort of squish it on the pan, using the cherry as the fingernail. Take a knife and make 4 little slashes where the knuckle would be.

Here is what they look like before being baked:

You'll get 22-24 monster fingers.

Here is what they look like after!

creepy, but tasty!
