ST. LOUIS — Spooky Monster Fingers

(Makes approx. 4 dozen “fingers”)


2 cups flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1 stick (1/2 cup) softened, unsalted butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

¼ teaspoon food coloring (color of your choice!)

24 slivered almonds

1 cup red colored jam/jelly


1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or grease.

2) Combine dry ingredients.

3) Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the softened butter and sugar together until fluffy. At least a couple of minutes

4) Add egg, vanilla and food coloring. Beat until well combined.

5) Slowly add in the dry ingredients until dough forms.

6) Using about ½-1 tablespoons (depending on how big you want your monster fingers) worth of dough at a time, role the dough between your hands into fingers, size of the fingers is up to you!

7) Place fingers on cookie sheet. At the top of each finger press a slivered almond on for the “finger nail.”

8) Add knuckles below the “nail” and about half way down the finger.

9) Bake 7-10 minutes.

10)Serve with your favorite flavor jam or jelly. Preferably, red in color. Our favorite is homemade strawberry!
