Halloween Cookies - fingers

A good shortbread recipe and some nuts become creepy fingers for nibbling. An online search will turn up several recipes, but this one at is one I typically use.

Be creative with your substitutes - jam instead of red food coloring, or pistachios (rather than almonds) for extra nasty fingernails. Don't leave out the knuckle details - they add to the gross factor!

The serving presentation is another opportunity for creativity - I envision these on a lab-white plate with raspberry sauce drizzled suggestively around the edges...
