Zombie Finger Cookies ~ Recipe

1cup Sugar
1cup butter (at room temp)
1 egg
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
2 3/4cup flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2cup Raw pumpkin seeds (1 per cookie)


1. Mix butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla until completely combined.

2. Combine dry ingredients in a seperate bowl (except pumpkin seeds) and combine with butter mixture.

3. Refrigerate dough for at least a half hour.

4. When you are ready to make the cookies, preheat oven to 300. Grease a cookie sheet.

5. Form dough into thin rolls. They don't have to be even - crooked fingers are creepy. Don't flatten them too much.

6. Press a pumpkin seed into one end of the cookie. Press horizontally towards the other end a bit so it sticks well and sinks into the nail bed like a real nail. You can either press a fork across the finger to create knuckles, or press the tines of the fork into the finger to create little holes.

7. If yours are thin (1/3 inch), bake for about 10 minutes or until just slightly browned. If yours are a lot thicker, bake up to 20 minutes.
